Hammond Road Upgrades (Success)

Project Status


Project Type



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 saw the duplication of this section of road, with construction starting in November 2021. The project was completed in September 2023.

What upgrades were done?

  • Hammond Road 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 became roundabouts

  • Shared paths were installed on either side of Hammond Road (between Branch Circus and Bartram Road)

  • On-road bicycle lanes installed

  • Raised central median islands installed

  • Underground services repositioned to suit the new road alignment

  • Street lighting, landscaping and drainage improvements

  • Retaining and noise wall structures.

How much did the upgrades cost?

The total cost of the project was $22.6m, funded from the following sources:  

  • State Government Metropolitan Regional Roads Program (MRRP) grant - $9,408,301  

  • Australian Government Roads to Recovery Program - $2,080,582  

  • Developer contributions - $4,101,311 

  • Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI) Phase 3 -$2,154,214  

  • City of Cockburn - $4,868,997  

The LRCI Program supports local Councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across Australia, supporting jobs and the resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
