Timeline

Start: Late 2018 Finish: Mid 2022

Budget

$23.4m

The City of Cockburn is committed to upgrading Jandakot Road in Jandakot, to accommodate the growing number of vehicles using the road and to improve safety for road users and pedestrians. 
 
The project involves significant modifications to the vertical and horizontal alignments of Jandakot Road which will improve the level of service and site visibility. The duplication of Jandakot Road will take place in three stages, with Stages 1 and 2 complete.

Why did it need to be upgraded?

Jandakot Road was approaching the limits of safe operating capacity for a single lane rural road; crash statistics showed that it was one of the most dangerous stretches of road in the Cockburn district.  

Facts

  • 105 crashes have occurred along Jandakot Road between 2013-2017, including one fatality near Coonadoo Court. A further fatality, not included in these statistics, occurred in September 2017 near the Warton Road roundabout
  • Traffic forecasts estimate that 26,000 vehicles will be using Jandakot Road each day by 2031. In 2017, 15,000 vehicles per day were using the road, which is the threshold for a single lane road before duplication is required
  • By 2031, there will also be an extra 20,000-30,000 people living in Jandakot, Treeby, Piara Waters, Harrisdale and Haynes, a significant number of which will use Jandakot Road to access Kwinana Freeway

Upgrades - Stage 1 and 2

Stage 1 - completed

  • The duplication of Jandakot Road from Fraser Road to just prior to its intersection with Solomon Road,
  • Upgrades:
    • Upgrade of Solomon Road between Cutler Road to just prior to the Jandakot/Solomon Road intersection 
    • Jandakot Road intersection upgrades at Coonadoo Court, Cessna Drive and Fraser Road
    • Solomon Road intersection upgrades at Peppworth Place and Dollier Road
    • Construction of intersections at Jandakot Road and Clementine Boulevard, and at Solomon Road and Greensand Promenade.

Construction work commenced in December 2018, and was completed in 2020.

Land acquisition and construction costs for these works were around $11M and funded by developer contributions from the adjoining residential estates, on the south side of Jandakot Road. The roadworks were managed by the City.

Stage 2 - completed

This stage of the project involved the duplication of Jandakot Road from Solomon Road through to Berrigan Drive. It also included:
  • Construction of a roundabout at the Jandakot Road intersection with Solomon Road
  • Jandakot Road intersection upgrades at Boeing Way and Falcon Place
  • Construction of a new roundabout and intersection to access the Urbanstone site
  • Construction of Open Grade Asphalt (OGA) wearing course which will improve road surface drainage and reduce noise generated by traffic
  • Drainage pipelines and structures
  • Construction of retaining wall structures
  • New Principal Shared Path (PSP)
  • Linemarking and traffic signs
  • New streetlighting system
  • Landscaping.

Construction commenced in May 2021, and finished in June 2022.

The $12.4m stage two project was made possible with $6.3m from the State Government’s Metropolitan Regional Road Group, $3.7m from the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program, $1.2m from Schaffer Corporation and $1.2m from Stockland.

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.

Stage 3

Stage 3 includes upgrades to Jandakot Road from Fraser Road to Warton Road. Before construction can start, the following needs to occur, including:

  • The design to confirm the exact detail for the road alignment and upgrade
  • Seeking government grants to help pay for the cost
  • Approvals to do the work (including environmental approvals)
  • Consultation with the community
  • Tendering of the work to ensure the best outcome and value.

This project is in the early planning stages and is directly related to the rate of development of the adjoining land to the south.
 

The City is upgrading Jandakot Road to accommodate the growing number of vehicles using the road. Stage 2 has just been completed and included widening Jandakot Road to two lanes in either direction from Solomon Road through to Berrigan Drive, plus new roundabouts, intersection upgrades and a shared path. Planning for the third and final stage is underway.
