Lloyd Street Extension
Cost: $35 million
At the City of Swan, planning is crucial to ensuring we can accommodate a growing population.
Traffic management is a key part of the City’s planning strategy.
The extension of Lloyd Street will create a much-needed southern entry to Midland, providing improved access to the new St John of God Hospital, a future university and a developing entertainment precinct.
It would also directly link Midland with the industrial areas of Hazelmere, Forrestfield, Kewdale and Perth Airport; helping reduce congestion and boost local employment opportunities.
The City’s vision for an interconnected road network between Midland and Hazelmere hinges on the completion of the Lloyd Street Bridge and the upgrade of intersections at Great Eastern Highway Bypass and Abernethy Road, and Great Eastern Highway Bypass and Roe Highway.
In 2019, the Federal Government committed $20 million towards the completion of the Lloyd Street Bridge. The WA State Government also committed a further $20 million to the project, which will now progress into the final design and construction phase.
Complementing the Lloyd Street project are two intersection upgrades on Great Eastern Highway Bypass at Roe Highway and at Abernethy Road. These projects have also been funded jointly by the Federal and State Government. The Federal Government has provided $144 million and the WA State Government has committed a further $36 million to ensure these projects proceed.
- A BRIDGE WILL PROVIDE AN ESSENTIAL TRANSPORT LINK FOR THE COMMUNITY.
- FREIGHT TRAFFIC IMPACTS ON NEARBY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS IN GUILDFORD AND HAZELMERE WILL BE REDUCED.
- LAND HAS BEEN RESERVED FOR THE EXTENSION OF LLOYD STREET FROM CLAYTON STREET TO GREAT EASTERN HIGHWAY BYPASS.
