$232m Mitchell Freeway extension opening next month

The Mitchell Freeway Extension to Romeo Road, located north of Perth, is on track to open on July 10.

The $232 million project will see the freeway extended north from Hester Avenue in Clarkson through to Romeo Road in Alkimos, creating a new north-south transport link in Perth’s north-west.

Approximately 34,500 vehicles are projected to use the freeway extension each day through to 2031.

There will be new freeway access points at Lukin Drive, Butler Boulevard and Romeo Rd.

The collaboration with METRONET has seen the construction of Romeo Rd, as well as the new east-west road link from Wanneroo Rd to Marmion Ave.

This includes a new bridge over rail on Romeo Rd, constructed as part of the Yanchep Rail Extension works.

The project is jointly funded by the Australian Government and the Western Australian Government, with each contributing $116 million.
