Major Road Projects in 2020-21 - City of Cockburn

Major road projects that the City of Cockburn is or will be undertaking in 2020-21, some with the state or federal government/ organisations include:

Jandakot Road 

The duplication of Jandakot Road will take place in two stages, with Stage 1 complete.

Stage 1 - completed.
This project involved the duplication of Jandakot Road from Fraser Road to just prior to the intersection with Solomon Road. It also included:
  • 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.
The City of Cockburn, the state government and a developer were all responsible for Stage 1.

Stage 2 - starting late 2020
  • The duplication of Jandakot Road from Solomon Road through to Berrigan Drive, including the 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 intersection to access the Urbanstone site.

A detailed design has been completed. Once land acquisition negotiations with affected landowners are finalised, a commencement date can be set for Stage 2. It is expected that construction will commence late 2020, and finish at the end of 2021.  

The road component is estimated to cost $9.7M, with $6.3M coming from the State Government’s Metropolitan Regional Roads Board funds, and the balance of $3.4M funded by the City.
