BMD Constructions to improve Perth’s Kwinana Freeway
By Kate Willis on 03 July 2018
BMD Constructions is set to reduce congestion, transform Kwinana Freeway and improve access from Perth to the city’s Southern suburbs.
To provide a third lane along the eight kilometre stretch of road, the Russell Road to Roe Highway project involves widening Kwinana freeway.
BMD will deliver the remaining section of the widening to Roe Highway and the works will interface with the Murdoch Drive connection project. At the same time, BMD will deliver the seven-kilometre section of the project between Russell Road and Bolderwood Reserve.
Along the western side of Kwinana Freeway, BMD’s scope of works also involves construction of noise walls subject to noise modelling requirements, upgrading and realigning principal share paths and modifications to drainage, kerbing, surfacing, lighting, road safety barriers, as well as service relocations, signage and line marking.
While the construction is expected to start in October this year, the design will start this month. The project is expected to reduce travel times and address congestion for road users in Perth’s Southern suburbs upon completion in 2019.
