The construction of the Northlink project, an extension of the Tonkin Highway, has severed a number of roads in the Bullsbrook area.
While all properties can still be accessed through the local road network, there may be some confusion to visitors, service providers and emergency services where a road name appears on either side of significant infrastructure.
To overcome this confusion and to comply with the Australian Standards and Landgate’s Policies and Standards for Geographical Naming in Western Australia, the City of Swan is proposing to rename those roads that have been fragmented.
Due to the design of Tonkin Highway having only two interchange points, at Neaves Road and Stock Road, you will have noticed that your local road has been bollarded by Main Roads creating a fragmented road. This has likely changed your travel routes to and from your property.
If the current access road to your property has been affected by these road works you will soon receive a new street name and street number to form a new street address.
The proposed changes to road names are shown on the maps below:

The City proposes to use existing road names where possible, new names will be applied where a road has been fragmented.
The proposed road names shown have been taken from the City’s Reserved Road Names Register.
The proposed new road names require approval by Council and the Topographic Names and Address Committee of Landgate. Due to meeting dates this process can take up to four months to complete.
Where possible, the City will endeavour to keep your street number the same, however this may not be feasible in all situations.
The City will provide you with written confirmation of your address when the process of approvals and numbering is complete.
Your new address is essential to emergency services and will be submitted by the City to Landgate, the WA authority for addressing, and Australia Post.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding while we make this change to ensure practical and reliable address information.
