The Mitchell Fwy extension works includes the duplication of Lukin Dr east of Connolly Dr to the freeway.

THERE will be access changes to Hinchinbrook Ave, Shepperton Dr and Ashbourne Ave from Lukin Dr as part of the Mitchell Fwy extension to Romeo Rd for the next four months.

The Mitchell Fwy extension works includes extending Mitchell Fwy from Hester Ave to Romeo Rd and the duplication of Lukin Dr east of Connolly Dr to the freeway.

Main Roads WA said to facilitate the duplication of Lukin Dr and the relocation of existing services, all Lukin Dr median crossings east of Connolly Dr, would temporarily close from May to September.

This will result in the following traffic restrictions:

  • No right-turn in or out of Hinchinbrook Ave, Ashbourne Ave and Shepperton Dr at Lukin Dr – there will be left turn access only.
  • Speed reduced to 40km/h through the work area.
Main Roads WA says access to the shops on the corner of Lukin Dr and Connolly Dr will not change.

Access to the shops on the corner of Lukin Dr and Connolly Dr will not change.

The existing closure of Lukin Dr westbound, east of Hinchinbrook Ave will remain, with access restricted to construction vehicle traffic only.

The westbound lane of Lukin Dr, between Redington Dr and Hinchinbrook Ave was permanently closed in early 2021.

Main Roads WA said the reduction in speed and temporary lane closures were necessary to safely undertake the works.
