Tonkin Highway in the Southern Zone
14 Mar 2016

Tonkin Highway closures this upcoming weekend

Some critical finishing works for Tonkin Highway will require closures of a section of the road on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (18, 19 and 20 March) weather permitting.

The section of Tonkin Highway that needs to be closed to traffic spans from Welshpool Road East to Roe Highway, affecting traffic travelling northbound towards the city and the airport. This will allow work crews to access the area and carry out the work safely and efficiently.

The work will help to finalise the widening of Tonkin Highway to six lanes within the Gateway WA area and to undertake some finishing works on the bridge structures at the Tonkin Highway/Roe Highway interchange.    

Detour routes will be in place for road users, please see our major traffic changes page for the associated traffic notice and detour map.

The project’s Southern Zone is targeting completion by the end of the month.
