Roe 8 takes the next step

Perth’s Roe Highway Extension

An alliance of Leighton Contractors, Georgiou Group, WA Limestone, GHD, Aecom and BG&E has been announced as preferred contractor for roe 8 project, with an alliance contract expected to be awarded late 2015.

Perth’s Roe Highway Extension (Roe 8) from east of Karel Avenue in Jandakot to Stock Road in Coolbellup is a strategic road project that will transform the road network in Perth’s southern suburbs.

It will provide the next critical link in Perth’s Urban Transport Corridor to connect Perth’s main inland industry areas such as Kewdale and Welshpool with Fremantle; and deliver improved transport access to Perth Airport, Kwinana Marine / industrial centre and the future Outer Harbour, as well as the existing Fremantle Inner Harbour.

The project includes design and construction of a five kilometre extension of the Roe Highway from Kwinana Freeway to Stock Road.

The work includes a freeway to freeway interchange at Kwinana Freeway, five interchanges/flyovers and a top‐down bridge over the Beeliar Wetlands.

Construction is scheduled to commence in mid-2016 and be completed by 2019.
