NorthLinkWA to cut travel times for Ellenbrook and The Vines residents

The NorthLink WA road project will help cater for future traffic increases as Perth’s population
grows. The $1.02 billion project is being constructed in three stages.


The southern section from Guildford Road to Reid Highway was completed in June 2018.
Meanwhile, works are well underway on the central section from Reid Highway to Ellenbrook and
the northern section from Ellenbrook to Muchea.

Upon completion in mid-2019, residents of Ellenbrook and The Vines should experience
improved access to their suburbs and free-flowing conditions along Tonkin Highway from Morley
to Muchea.

Main Roads WA says NorthLink WA will deliver significant “savings in travel times” for local
residents, with a car ride from Ellenbrook to Morley expected to take about 10 minutes.


“NorthLink WA will take traffic off local roads and onto Tonkin Highway,” they add. “This means
local roads, such as Beechboro Road North, will be used for local traffic and those who live and
work locally will experience a safer, more peaceful environment.”

Cyclists and pedestrians have also been considered with an extra-wide shared path to be
installed from Guildford Road to Ellenbrook.
