About this event

NorthLink WA has a long term vision to cater for the traffic volumes associated with a future Perth population of 3.5 million. The Federal and State Governments have invested $1.02 billion in NorthLink WA.

The new road will complement Gateway WA, servicing regional traffic movements to the State's west and to commercial and industrial areas such as Malaga, Kewdale and Perth Airport. The construction of roads to freeway standards including 9 new interchanges and 8 other grade separations will provide a non-stop transport route between Morley and Muchea, improving traffic flow and safety and reducing travel times and congestion.

Refreshments provided.
