Providing a vital road portal for traffic and freight movements
CPB Contractors worked with Main Roads Western Australia to deliver the northern section of NorthLink WA.
The design and construct contract involved the construction of a free-flowing dual carriageway between Ellenbrook and Muchea.
NorthLink WA northern section provides a vital road portal for traffic and freight movements to commercial and industrial areas north of Perth, as well as improved safety, reduced congestion and faster travel times for road users.
Delivering new and upgraded transport infrastructure within live traffic environments is a core capability for CPB Contractors, and the safe and efficient management of the traffic network during construction was a key priority.
Scope of works included:
- New junctions at Stock Road, Neaves Road and Muchea;
- Bridges built over local roads, railways and Ellen Brook; and
- Separate cycling and pedestrian paths to provide safer and better connections between local communities.
Construction was completed in 2019.
CPB Contractors has previously undertaken a number of major roads initiatives for Main Roads Western Australia, including leading the Alliance that delivered the $1 billion Gateway WA Perth Airport and Freight Access project.
The $1.12 billion NorthLink WA complements Gateway WA and supports regional traffic volumes to commercial and industrial areas such as Malaga, Kewdale, Perth Airport and the Perth CBD.
