The Western Australian Government will be investing approximately $1.7 billion through the 2019-20 State Budget in a bid to improve road conditions in Perth’s eastern region as well as on the Tonkin Highway.
The significant investment will tackle some of Perth’s most congested intersections and roads, a great focus is on the bottleneck on Tonkin Highway that stretches across the Swan River from Guildford Road to Great Eastern Highway.
The $1.7 billion roads package will help support our economy by creating 8,000 jobs for Western Australians.
The first of the upgrades will commence in 2020 whereby the Tonkin Highway will be widened from Great Eastern Highway to just north of Guildford Road, creating 5,200 job opportunities.
The Roe Highway package of projects will also start in 2020, creating 1,050 jobs.
