Congestion

City of Swan, located in Perth, is planning a $2 million upgrade to a major intersection, in an attempt to reduce traffic congestion which has worsened following the NorthLink upgrade.

Since the completion of the second stage of NorthLink, traffic volumes on Hepburn Avenue have increased from 17,000 vehicles per day in 2017 to more than 33,000 in 2020.

Council is seeking funding from the Metropolitan Regional Road Group to upgrade the intersection at Hepburn Avenue and Marangaroo Drive to a roundabout in the 2023-24 financial year.

It is expected that this upgrade will reduce delays and improve the overall safety of the community.

This project follows the completion of the roundabout at the Hepburn Avenue and Bellefin Intersection in the 2021/22 financial year, which significantly improved congestion and road safety in the area.
