Gateway WA is a $1 billion infrastructure project that will deliver an efficient road and bridge network to the new Perth Airport precinct, surrounding businesses and residential areas, and the rapidly growing transport and logistics operations in the area.
The focus for improvements will be along the stretch of Tonkin Highway between Great Eastern Highway and Roe Highway, as well as Leach Highway from Orrong Road to the Perth Airport.
Works will include a major freeway to freeway interchange at Tonkin Highway and Leach Highway, new interchanges at Tonkin Highway and Horrie Miller Drive and Leach Highway and Abernethy Road, plus the upgrading of Tonkin Highway to six lanes between Great Eastern Highway and Roe Highway.
