Anketell-Thomas Road Freight Corridor Planning

Westport and Main Roads WA have started early planning for the Anketell-Thomas Road freight corridor.

26 April 2022

This corridor will connect the future terminal in Kwinana’s Outer Harbour with Tonkin Highway and support development opportunities in the area, economic growth and job creation.

The early road concept for the freight corridor between Clementi Road in Mandogalup and Tonkin Highway in Oakford allows for uninterrupted east west movement for freight vehicles and enhanced safety for local road users. Key design features include:

  • Both four and six lanes with a concrete median, and proposed bridges, interchanges and roundabout access at key intersections.
  • Service roads to provide access to properties on Anketell and Thomas roads.
  • A shared path along the south side of the corridor for pedestrians and cyclists.

Westport is sharing the early road concept design to capture feedback and will be directly talking to affected property owners along the road corridor.

The early concept design is the first step in the freight corridor planning process. Over the next 18 months we will focus on refining the design, following community engagement and technical studies.

While land requirements and the design are not yet confirmed a Planning Control Area (PCA) is intended to identify the area potentially needed for the future road and ensure proposed developments in the area support the future road freight corridor.

All landowners directly affected by possible land requirements and/or the proposed PCA will be contacted by the Westport Office to discuss what it may mean for them.\
