- $5 million, 600m principal shared path will complete a 22km cycling and pedestrian network in Perth's south-eastern suburbs
- Completion planned for March 2017
Perth cyclists and pedestrians will benefit from a 600 metre principal shared path (PSP) which will complete a 22 kilometre route between the Kwinana Freeway and Forrestfield.
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said work would start soon on the Liberal National Government's new $5 million pathway, which would include a 120m bridge overpass at the Roe Highway and Orrong Road interchange.
"This new pathway will complete the final and missing link in the 22km cycling and pedestrian route along Roe Highway, between the Kwinana Freeway and Berkshire Road in Forrestfield," Mr Nalder said.
"It will also connect to the continuous shared path adjacent to Tonkin Highway, recently completed as part of the Gateway WA project.
"Following the successful completion of Gateway WA and the current works on the Roe Highway upgrade between Tonkin Highway and Orrong Road, pedestrians and cyclists will have uninterrupted movement from the Swan River along Tonkin and Roe highways to the Kwinana Freeway."
Detailed design of the PSP project is underway. Work is expected to start by the end of the year and completion is anticipated in March 2017.
The opening of the PSP is scheduled to align with the completion of the Roe Highway Upgrade project.
- The new 600m pathway will include a four metre wide off-road shared path, connecting to existing paths and access to the new Orrong Road/Roe Highway interchange
- The Liberal National Government has allocated $90.5 million over four years to improve safety and bike network connectivity for West Australians
