Tonkin Gap Project and Associated Works (January 2021)
Main Roads WA will continue working in the median of Tonkin Highway at Reid Highway interchange and Benara Road intersection as part of the enabling works for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line project.
A speed reduction to 80km northbound from south of Benara Road to north of Reid Highway is still in place.
More information can be found on the Main Roads website.
Out of hours work (From December 15, 2020)
As part of the rail enabling works for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, Main Roads WA have started pouring concrete for the pier protection in the Tonkin Highway median at the Benara Road intersection.
The concrete can only be poured when the temperature is cooler, therefore, some works need to start before 7am.
The community may notice large trucks and machinery on local roads and in the rail corridor creating noise and vibration. All works will follow an approved Noise Management Plan.
