The project delivered a number of upgraded and improved facilities, designed to enhance the local area both in function and aesthetics.
Noise / Screen Walls
As part of the Gateway WA project, approximately seven kilometres of new noise / screen walls were constructed to help reduce traffic noise to local residential areas located near the Leach Highway, Tonkin Highway and Roe Highway sections of the project. Noise / screen walls were included in all three project zones – Northern, Western and Southern.
Pedestrian and Cyclist Facilities
New Principal Shared Paths were installed as part of the Gateway WA project, providing improved facilities for cyclists and pedestrians. The new paths provide improved access for walking and cycling along the new road alignment.
The project installed 21 kilometres of Principal Shared Path and local connections adjacent to the new road alignment along Tonkin and Leach Highways, the extension of Leach Highway into Perth Airport (Airport Drive), and Roe Highway.
