More than $1 billion in funding is allocated for the project, with the Commonwealth and state governments committing $749 million and $296 million respectively.

“The extension of Tonkin Highway represents the largest road investment Perth’s south-east corridor has ever seen,” WA transport minister Rita Saffioti says.

“The project will increase network capacity, improve road freight efficiency and ease traffic congestion on local roads now and in the future.

“It will improve access to growing residential and commercial areas, the airport and the freeway, and better connect people to jobs and education opportunities.

“The project also supports and aligns with our Westport outer harbour plans in Kwinana and will also provide even better transport options for our southern suburbs alongside the Metronet Byford Train Station.”

Further information on the tender can be found here. Applications close April 23. A briefing session will be held at Don Aitken Centre, Waterloo Crescent, East Perth on March 27 at 1pm.
