The $175 million contract for the design and construction of the northern section of highway from Ellenbrook to Muchea has been won by CPB Contractors.
This third stage in the project involves the construction of a free-flowing dual carriageway between Ellenbroom and Muchea, with new interchanges at Stock Road, Neaves Road and Brand Highway.
“Traffic congestion will be vastly improved as drivers will be able to bypass up to 16 sets of traffic lights and two railway crossings,” said Mr. Marmion in a statement.
“Safety issues will be addressed at four of the State’s most dangerous intersections, with more than 150 kilometres of road safety barriers to protect vehicle occupants and separate oncoming traffic.”
Once completed, NorthLink WA will provide a continuous connection from the Perth Airport area through to Muchea, and together with the Gateway WA and Perth Freight Link projects will be a major part of a high standard freight connection to Fremantle Port.
“Construction is already well underway on Stage 1, Stage 2 is commencing and Stage 3 will begin by mid-2017, so we are certainly on target for project completion in 2019,” Mr. Marmion said.
