Easter Long Weekend – Expect Delays On Kwinana Freeway Southbound

Commuters Heading South For The Easter Break Should Allow Extra Travel Time

Main Roads WA advises people heading south for the Easter break and school holidays to expect delays and congestion on Kwinana Freeway.

Due to the Kwinana Freeway Widening Project, an 80km/h speed limit applies fromRoe Highway to Armadale Road.  Two lanes of traffic will remain open.

“We are urging commuters to stagger their departure times if possible, instead of leaving mid to late Thursday afternoon,” Main Roads’ Managing Director Steve Troughton said.

“We advise people to plan their journey and where possible, consider alternative routes, such as Tonkin Highway or South Western Highway,” Mr Troughton said

“Once completed, the widening project will play an important role in improving congestion on the Kwinana Freeway southbound, particularly at the congested Roe Highway entrance onto the freeway.

“Vehicles exiting from Roe Highway will join the freeway in a dedicated lane, without having to merge with freeway traffic.

“This will significantly heighten safety at a critical merge point on the network.” 

Road users are asked to drive safely and remember that double demerits apply over Easter.
