Port Kennedy Drive Duplication

  • Major infrastructure projects
  • Construction

Project summary

We are constructing a second carriageway on Port Kennedy Drive.

Current works

The construction of the new second carriageway on Port Kennedy Drive (between Ennis Avenue and Warnbro Sound Avenue) commenced in early May 2019 and is scheduled to be completed by late December 2019.  Appropriate traffic management will be in place at all times for motorists travelling adjacent to the worksite, however there may be minor delays to allow construction traffic to enter/exit the existing carriageway.

Following completion of the civil works for the new carriageway, traffic will then be temporarily diverted onto this carriageway.  This will allow upgrading works to be undertaken on the existing carriageway, including minor widening, resurfacing and construction of a new off-road shared asphalt and concrete pedestrian/cyclist path.

The anticipated completion date for the project is February/ arch 2020.


Metropolitan Regional Road Group (MRRG) and City funding (two thirds MRRG funding and one third municipal funding).


$2,100,000 in 2018/2019
$2,400,000 in 2019/2020.

Scope of works

The project consists of duplicating Port Kennedy Drive from Ennis Avenue to Warnbro Sound Avenue.
