An approved concept design for the Murdoch Drive Connection was announced by the Transport Minister on 22 January 2018.
The concept design retains the existing connectivity between Bibra Drive, Farrington Road and Murdoch Drive albeit with some changes to traffic movements.
Key project traffic movements include:
two-way access to the Murdoch Activity Centre from Kwinana Freeway and Roe Highway
access to the Murdoch Drive Connection northbound (towards the Murdoch Activity Centre) from Bibra Drive
access from Murdoch Drive southbound (from Murdoch Activity Centre) to Farrington Road
As of 6, April 2020, the introduction of metered roundabouts on:
- Bibra Drive Roundabout, between Farrington Road and Hope Road
- Farrington Road / Murdoch Drive / Allendale Entrance Roundabout
to allow the roundabouts to function efficiently in peak hour situations, or when emergency vehicles need priority access.
Access from the Murdoch Drive Connection to Bibra Drive, and from the existing Murdoch Drive to Murdoch Drive Connection no longer forms part of the current project scope.
A cul-de-sac, previously proposed for Bibra Drive has also been removed from the concept design. As a result, access from Bibra Drive to Farrington Road will remain the same as at present.
