Three Contractors Shortlisted For Mitchell Freeway Contract

The Federal and Western Australian Governments have shortlisted three consortia to submit detailed design and construction proposals for the rollout of Smart Freeways technology along the Mitchell Freeway southbound. The three consortia shortlisted are: CPB, GHD, UGL and SAGE Intelligent Freeways Alliance (NRW, Lendlease Services, WSP) SmartWays Alliance (BMD, Ventia, Arup) This stage of the project will deliver coordinated ramp signals at seven freeway entry ramps from Reid Highway to Vincent Street, ensuring vehicles enter the freeway safely and efficiently while avoiding stop-start conditions at known pinch points.Closer to the city, Smart Freeway infrastructure will be installed with lane use management technology to display open and closed traffic lanes for incident management, unlocking additional freeway capacity and allowing traffic to be managed in real-time.Variable speed limits will improve traffic flow and safety by making adjustments based on traffic volumes and conditions, while dynamic message signs over the freeway lanes will display information about the road conditions ahead.The project will also install other smart technology such as CCTV, Vehicle Detectors, Automatic Incident Detection, and Stopped Vehicle Detection at emergency stopping bays, as well as upgrade the existing Traffic Control Systems Network to the future-proof smart operation of the road network.Smart Freeway technology is also being delivered as part of the Mitchell Freeway Southbound Upgrade: Hodges to Hepburn project, with nine entry ramps from Hester Avenue to Warwick Road to receive coordinated ramp signals.Combined, the upgrade and roll out of Smart Freeways on Mitchell Freeway southbound will result in average travel time savings of up to seven minutes from Hodges Drive to Vincent Street for over 28,000 vehicles that use this section of the freeway during the morning peak period.More than 1,000 direct and indirect jobs will be supported during the life of the project.The $140 million Smart Freeway Mitchell Southbound program is jointly funded on a 50:50 basis by the Federal and Western Australian governments.Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said, “The Mitchell Freeway upgrades are part of the Australian Government’s multibillion-dollar investment in infrastructure in Perth that is creating jobs and economic stimulus while improving critical transport networks.“This $140 million Smart Freeway program will address congestion and bottlenecks to improve journey reliability and provide congestion relief to more than 50,000 southbound motorists each day.“As Perth continues to develop and grow, this innovative technology is the most efficient solution to manage the resulting congestion without continually widening the road – meaning we will get drivers home sooner and safer with the least disruption to communities in the area.”WA Transport Minister, Rita Saffioti, “The Smart Freeways technology proved popular along the Kwinana Freeway, with morning drivers saving up to ten minutes on their daily commute.“We’re now rolling this technology out along the Mitchell Freeway Southbound, which when complete, will save 28,000 drivers up to seven minutes on their daily morning commute.“This forms part of a suite of transport improvements for our rapidly growing northern suburbs, enabling more jobs for local workers and businesses, with 1,000 direct and indirect jobs expected to be created over the life of the Smart Freeway Mitchell southbound projects.“Work is also underway on other major northern suburbs projects including the Mitchell Freeway Extension, widening the Mitchell Freeway from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue and the long awaited Yanchep Rail Extension.”

$448M Mitchell Freeway Upgrade Creates 2,200 Jobs

A $448 million upgrade to Mitchell Freeway is now underway, with three separate projects undergoing construction and more than 2,200 local jobs set to be supported.When completed, the three projects are expected to help bust congestion and transform travel to and from Perth’s booming northern suburbs.The $232 million Mitchell Freeway Extension project will extend the freeway north from Hester Avenue to Romeo Road and is anticipated to create more than 1,200 local jobs. Fast tracked to boost the economy through COVID-19, the project is being delivered by the Mitchell Extension Joint Venture, a consortium of BMD Construction and Georgiou Group.The project will include new freeway access points at Hester Avenue, Lukin Drive and Romeo Road, an extension of Romeo Road from Wanneroo Road to Marmion Avenue, duplication of Wanneroo Road from Romeo Road to Trian Road and new shared paths on the western side of the freeway. Additional funding recently announced by the Federal Government means the interchange at Butler Boulevard can also be added to the scope. On top of this, funding has also been negotiated to enable the duplication of Wanneroo Road from south of Romeo Road to Dunstan Road – this will result in a continuous dual carriageway on Wanneroo Road all the way north to Taronga Place in Carabooda.Work on the $140 million Smart Freeway project has also commenced and will see the popular technology rolled out at nine entry ramps southbound from Hester Avenue to Warwick Road.The project is anticipated to create and support more than 500 direct and indirect jobs.The third project will see the Mitchell Freeway southbound widened to three lanes between Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue, along with upgrades to the Principal Shared Path for cyclists and pedestrians.This project also includes construction of a new lane from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue, an extra lane from Hepburn Avenue entry ramp to Warwick Road exit ramp, new safety barriers and new or upgraded shared paths between Ocean Reef Road to Warwick Station.All three projects are jointly funded by the Federal Government and Western Australian Government, and are on track to be completed late 2023.Western Australian Premier, Mark McGowan, said the $448 million transformation would provide a massive boost to the economy while also transforming the northern suburbs.“We know the northern suburbs are booming with the Western Australian Planning Commission estimating by 2031, the population of the region will have grown by 39 per cent to 395,000 and to 740,000 by 2050,” Mr McGowan said.“It’s important we plan and deliver the infrastructure needed for the future today, which is why we are investing millions in transport upgrades for our northern suburbs to reduce traffic congestion, improve safety and slash travel times.“Combined with other major transport projects underway, including the METRONET Yanchep Rail extension, these projects are creating and supporting thousands of direct and indirect jobs while providing a welcome boost to our economy.”Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, said the Federal Government was pleased to partner with the Western Australian Government to deliver these key projects.“Perth’s north-west metropolitan region is growing rapidly, with unprecedented levels of investment boosting the local economy and driving population growth and demand for an effective transport network,” Mr Fletcher said.“This significant upgrade of the Mitchell Freeway will increase connectivity, improve journey reliability and help alleviate local road capacity issues for commuters.”Western Australian Transport Minister, Rita Saffioti, said the projects form part of an extensive upgrade to road, rail and cycling infrastructure works currently underway in Perth’s northern corridor. “When complete, the Mitchell Freeway Extension Project will deliver time savings of up to 15 minutes northbound from Narrows Bridge to Alkimos during the afternoon peak period,” Ms Saffioti said.“The widening of the Mitchell Freeway southbound from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue will improve journey times by seven minutes for drivers, while also increasing the freeway’s southbound capacity by up to 50 per cent, leading to shorter journeys for 51,000 motorists daily.“We have been successful in including a new interchange at Butler Boulevard and duplicating Wanneroo Road in this project, which will mean less rat runs through the northern suburbs and a smoother journey.“The northern suburbs are seeing unprecedented development with the extension of Stephenson Avenue and expansion of the rail network through the METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension.”
