CPB wins contract to deliver $50m Wanneroo Rd-Joondalup Dr intersection

Monica Gameng   |   August 7, 2018

The $50 million Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive intersection upgrade in Western Australia has marked a major milestone, with the contract to deliver the project awarded to CIMIC Group member CPB Contractors.

The company was previously invited to bid for the project along with three other builders, including BMD Constructions, Georgiou Group and Decmil Group’s subsidiary Cut & Fill.

In June of this year, the scope of the project was modified to include upgrades to three nearby intersections. The Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive intersection upgrade scope of works will now include:

  • Grade separation of Joondalup going over Wanneroo Road with two lanes in each direction
  • New roundabout at current intersection of Joondalup Drive and Cheriton Drive
  • New signalised intersection at Wanneroo Road and Clarkson Avenue
  • Modifications to intersections with local roads - Drovers Place and St Stephen Crescent
  • A roundabout with two or three lanes
  • Retaining walls and noise walls on intersection quadrants
  • Road furniture, fencing, drainage, landscaping and street lighting
  • Shared paths and bus facilities
  • Driveways and accommodation works

Once the upgrade is completed, it will improve connectivity, safety and travel times for all road users passing through the route.

In a statement released in June, Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said: “ The Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive interchange project is required to address projected levels of congestion that will arise due to residential and commercial expansion in Perth’s northern corridor.”

“It will complement other projects on Wanneroo Road to cater for long-term traffic demands and provide more reliable access, which will increase the attractiveness of Perth’s north-west corridor as an industrial centre, supporting the growth of local jobs and services,” the Minister added.

CPB Contractors is set to commence early works this month to prepare the site for major construction activities projected to begin in September 2018.

Main Roads WA and CPB Contractors will be working closely together during the 18-month delivery period of the Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive intersection upgrade.

This project is funded by the Australian and Western Australian Governments as part of the $2.3 billion investment for roads and rail infrastructure - which was announced in 2017.
