EastLink WA Planning and Development

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

EastLink WA will transform Perth's transport network with significant upgrades to Reid and Roe Highways, and an upgraded and new route to Northam. The project is currently in the planning and development phase. This is the place where we'll engage the community on specific issues and at key milestones.

Phase 2: Highway Connectivity Map is now open

The first phase of the interactive map provided an initial look at access point locations along the highway and the intended travel movements. Building on this, this next phase of information and consultation focuses on connectivity and is available for you to view and consider via the Phase 2: Highway connectivity interactive map below. On this map you can view:

  • the updated highway alignment
  • interchange and intersection layouts
  • local roads created to connect to the highway and proposed cul-de-sacs
  • major cycle and pedestrian paths
  • a new gravel track under investigation to realign the Kep Track from Wundowie to Clackline.

The Phase 2 interactive map will be open for comment until 30 June 2022. Feedback received from Phase 1 and 2 interactive maps will be considered alongside a wide range of social, environmental, heritage, engineering, and land-use requirements, and will inform the Access Strategy for the project. The interactive map shows the ultimate future design, which considers the transport requirements forecast for a 2051 planning horizon.

Features of interest

Local roads to service the highway

The event of a bushfire is top of mind for the community. The Access Strategy for the project is designed to be compliant with the State Planning Policy 3.7, which guides the planning of infrastructure in bushfire-prone areas. We have also worked closely with the relevant State and Local Government agencies to ensure the Access Strategy meets operational and emergency requirements for each area. As a result, the proposed highway has a significant number of side roads being planned adjacent to the highway to provide the required access and egress in the event of an emergency.

The Kep Track

The track is an important asset for people who live and visit the region. Between Wundowie and Clackline, the proposed highway overlaps and crosses the Track at several locations. We have recently engaged key users of the Track in two collaborative forums to identify priority features and functions of the Track, identify opportunities for improvement, and to seek feedback on proposed treatments to ensure changes to the Track meet requirements for different users. We encourage you to take the Kep Track Survey below to share your feedback as well.

Kep Track Survey

The proposed Kep Track connection and realignment is still under investigation. We’d like to hear from you to understand how you use and experience the Kep Track. Visit the interactive map to see the proposed changes to the track and tell us about how you use and experience the track by taking the survey below.

Get started

  • You must register your details to contribute to the map. Click ‘sign in’ or ‘register’ to sign up to My Say Transport.
  • Click and drag your mouse to interact with the map and zoom in and out to view the proposed highway.
  • Click on the information markers to learn more about the access and connectivity. Yellow markers indicate what’s being proposed and light blue indicates what is still under investigation.
  • Provide your feedback by adding pins (make as many contributions as you like) along the highway and tell us where you: 

Agree with the access and connectivity provided and why?

Disagree with the access and connectivity provided and why?

Would like more information?

Guide for contributors

  • Some features shown in this map are under investigation or are subject to refinement and may change as a result of the planning and development process.
  • This activity is designed to seek feedback on access and connectivity only, including how you might use the highway. Users who intentionally distract from or ignore this topic of discussion may have their comments treated as off-topic and removed. 
  • Your feedback is important to us, and if your comment is removed, we’ll contact you by email to ensure your feedback has been captured as part of the broader project. If you’d like to provide feedback on broader project topics please get in touch with us at enquiries@mainroads.wa.gov.au.
  • Before you start, please read the My Say Transport Forum Etiquette & Moderation Policy. All contributions posted to the map will be visible to the public except for comments that do not adhere to this policy. 
  • The interactive map will be open until 5pm 30 June 2022.
