NRW Contracting has been named as the preferred proponent for the design and construction of two new interchanges on the Reid Highway in Western Australia.
The project will see two free-flowing interchanges constructed to replace the signalised intersections at Altone Road and Drumpellier Drive/Daviot Road. The new interchanges will improve safety, traffic flow and increase the efficiency and reliability of freight movement.
As part of the project, Reid Highway will be modified to pass over Altone Road, while a new bridge will be constructed to allow Drumpellier Drive/Daviot Road to pass over Reid Highway. Access ramps and roundabouts will also be constructed to maintain connectivity to and from the highway.

Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King said the project would also help to improve safety.
“Reid Highway is a vital freight route across Perth’s northern suburbs and the progressive removal of signalised intersections is delivering shorter, safer and more predictable journey times,” King said.
Construction is on track to begin in the first half of 2024 and scheduled for completion in early 2026.
