Anketell-Thomas Road Freight Corridor

The early concept design for the Anketell-Thomas Road Corridor connects the future container terminal in Kwinana’s Outer Harbour with Tonkin Highway.

Anketell-Thomas Road Freight Corridor

Work is now underway to develop a concept design for a freight corridor using Anketell and Thomas roads, which will connect Tonkin Highway with the growing strategic Kwinana industrial area and future port.

Land requirements are not yet confirmed, but we want to help potentially affected property owners and the wider community to understand what this may mean for them as the freight corridor concept design is refined. 

Westport is sharing the early road concept design to capture feedback. The concept design is the first phase of the freight corridor planning process, with the concept design expected to be refined following community engagement and technical studies over the next 18 months.

 

The Early Concept Design 

The early concept for the corridor between Clementi Road in Mandogalup to Tonkin Hwy in Oakford includes:

  • Upgrading Thomas and Anketell Roads to four lanes between Tonkin Highway in Oakford and Lyon Road in Anketell and creating two lanes in each direction for general traffic plus dedicated freight only lanes (one in each direction) between Lyon Road and Clementi Road in Mandogalup, which will include new bridges over Kwinana Freeway.
  • New interchanges, bridges, roundabouts and ramps at Thomas and Kargotich and Thomas and Nicholson roads.
  • 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.

The concept provides uninterrupted east-west movement for freight vehicles, and enhanced safety for local road users, as well as high-grade pedestrian and cyclist access.

Community and landowner engagement

Planning Control Area

A Planning Control Area will help identify the area needed for the future road and ensure proposed developments adjacent support the future freight corridor.
