City welcomes State Government Armadale Rd bridge contract

4JULY2019

The State Government has awarded a contract for construction of the Armadale Road to North Lake Road bridge.

The Armadale Access Alliance, a consortium comprising Laing O'Rourke and BG&E in partnership with Main Roads WA, will deliver the $134 million contract following a competitive tendering process. 

The project to build a bridge over Kwinana Freeway connecting Armadale Road and North Lake Road will create 1,400 jobs. The existing interchange at Kwinana Freeway is the 10th most congested intersection in the metropolitan area.

The contract is a significant milestone for the City of Cockburn and the City of Armadale.
 
It is the culmination of their successful joint Community Connect South campaign to lobby federal and state government for funds to improve Armadale Road congestion.
 
The campaign included duplicating Armadale Road between Tapper and Anstey roads, due for completion late this year, and construction of  the Armadale Road bridge. This will be complete by late 2021.
