Nominations invited - Community reference groups for Wanneroo projects

Published Monday, 7th August 2017

Community reference groups for Wanneroo Road widening and Wanneroo Road/Joondalup Drive interchange projects.

Community Information Session

The Metropolitan Road Improvement Alliance, on behalf of Main Roads WA, is delivering two projects in Perth’s northern suburbs as part of a $2.3 billion package of road and rail infrastructure projects funded by the Commonwealth and State Governments:

  • Design and construction for Wanneroo Road Widening, Joondalup Drive to Flynn Drive, which will see this 3.2km section of Wanneroo Road upgraded from one to two lanes in each direction to alleviate current congestion and enhance road safety. Construction is scheduled to begin later this year.
  • Planning and development for the Wanneroo Road / Joondalup Drive Interchange, which will include a grade separation with Joondalup Drive going over Wanneroo Road with two lanes in each direction. This development work will enable a contract for design and construction to be awarded in mid-2018.

Community reference groups – Nominations now invited

Stakeholder and community engagement is important to project governance and we are establishing community reference groups for each project. Each group will have a different role, duration and meeting frequency to reflect the status of each project and the opportunity for community involvement.

The information sheet below provides further detail about each group.
