By the end of this month, works will be well underway on the Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive Interchange project. Early works which involved the location of services are nearly complete, and fences and temporary pedestrian paths have started to be installed around the work area.
The installation of barriers has been rescheduled to late November / early December. The barriers will be installed on all four corners of the intersection of Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive and on the northern side of the Burns Beach Road roundabout.
Works will be undertaken from Monday to Saturday, between 7pm and 7am, for approximately two weeks and will involve lane closures to ensure the safety of motorists and work crews during these times.
To minimise disturbance to residents as much as possible, an out-of-hours noise management plan has been prepared by CPB Contractors and approved by the City of Wanneroo and City of Joondalup.
Other works, including earthworks, drainage and pavement construction will be undertaken during day shift.

Pedestrian and cycle access
Before the fences and barriers are installed, some pedestrian paths will need to be diverted. The map below shows the existing, new and closed paths.
The path along Joondalup Drive, east of Wanneroo Road, will be closed after Wednesday 28 November 2018 from Wanneroo Road to St Stephens Crescent. Pedestrians are advised to divert via Clarkson Avenue and St Stephens Crescent using the footpath. Other streets in this area will be open, however they do not incorporate off-road footpaths.
Road users and local residents are asked to be aware of pedestrians and cyclists, and take care in the area while path diversions are in place.
