Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 25 September 2019

KWINANA FREEWAY — NORTHBOUND WIDENING

1077. Hon PETER COLLIER to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

I refer to the Kwinana Freeway northbound widening project.

(1) Can the minister confirm that the completion date for the project has been delayed?

(2) If yes to (1), how long is the delay to the completion of the project?

(3) If yes to (1), what is the new completion date?

(4) If yes to (1), what is the reason for the project not being completed on time?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) No. The roadworks are scheduled for completion by the end of the year. The new northbound lanes will open in stages from early 2020 onwards. This staged opening is required to enable other works in the area, notably the construction of the concrete barriers for the Metronet Thornlie–Cockburn Link project, to be undertaken safely and efficiently.

(2)–(4) Not applicable.
