About the project

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport is undertaking major asphalt resurfacing works on Salisbury Highway, between Elder Smith Road, Mawson Lakes and the connection with the Port River Expressway, Wingfield. The works will also include resurfacing the on and off ramps at the intersection of Port Wakefield Road and Salisbury Highway.

Resurfacing will be undertaken on 5.5 kilometres of Salisbury Highway and will improve road safety and network reliability, support economic activity and deliver a smoother, more reliable journey.

This project is funded under the State Government’s Metro Road Stimulus Program and the Periodic Maintenance Program, and support 50 full time equivalent jobs.

Stage one of the works will be from west of Elder Smith Road, to west of the Port Wakefield Road overpass. Stage two will be from east of Kidman Road, to east of the Port River Expressway/Northern Connector interchange.

Stage one works were undertaken between September and November. Stage two commenced in mid-November and are expected to be completed in late December, 2021.

We encourage the community to register for email updates.
