As part of the Midland Highway Perth Link Roads Project, an important component of the regional road safety upgrade, a number of traffic transfers will occur as part of the staging to open the full project over the coming two months. The first of these will be opening a section of the highway linking the new Southern Roundabout with Illawarra Road. Initially this will be for Westbound traffic traveling towards Longford and Devonport only, with Eastbound traffic continuing on Illawarra Road as it currently stands.

Illawarra Road will no longer be accessible for Westbound traffic leaving Perth. ALL LONGFORD BOUND TRAFFIC FROM PERTH WILL HAVE TO UTILISE THE NEW SOUTHERN ROUNDABOUT.

Please take care while driving through roadworks sites. Thank-you for your patience and understanding during this busy construction period.
