Start: Late 2021
Finish: Late 2023
The City of Cockburn is working with the State and Federal Governments to improve our transport network and reduce traffic congestion. The upgrade to the section of Hammond Road between Branch Circus and Bartram Road in Success will help to achieve this and includes two lanes in either direction and new roundabouts at three key intersections. These upgrades will make travelling to and from Cockburn Central quicker and easier.
The first stage of works between Branch Circus and Bartram Road relocated the underground services such as water, Telstra, gas and Western Power infrastructure. Stage two is to duplicate this section of road, with construction starting in November 2021. The project should be completed towards the end of 2023.
What upgrades are being done?
Hammond Road to become a dual-carriageway (two lanes in each direction) between Branch Circus and Bartram Road
Bartram Road, Carmel Way/Darlot Avenue and Hird Road intersections to become roundabouts
Shared paths to be installed on either side of Hammond Road (between Branch Circus and Bartram Road)
On-road bicycle lanes to be installed
Raised central median islands to be installed
Underground services to be repositioned to suit the new road alignment
Street lighting, landscaping and drainage improvements
- Retaining and noise wall structures.
