The Perth Link Roads project has improved safety and efficiency by removing heavy vehicles from the centre of Perth as they travel to and from the northern and north-western ports.

This project provided a divided dual lane highway (four lanes, about 4.5 km in length) around the western side of Perth, continuing on from the Perth-Breadalbane project, connecting in to Illawarra Road, and joining up at the South Esk Bridge.

Works also included:

  • northbound and southbound lanes being separated by a 2.1 metre-wide median and a central flexible safety barrier
  • audible edge lines
  • a roundabout near the South Esk River Bridge
  • an upgraded interchange at Illawarra Road
  • highway access ramps at the northern end of Perth
  • a cycling path from Drummond Street to Illawarra Road
  • an underpass for the existing rail line south of Illawarra Road.

This project is the final link in a dual carriageway along the Midland Highway, from Launceston to the south of Perth, Tasmania.

Works started in 2018, and the project was completed in 2020.
