Murdoch Drive Connection

The $100 million Murdoch Drive Connection project comprises the extension of Murdoch Drive south from Farrington Road to provide connections to Roe Highway and Kwinana Freeway. The project has been planned in various forms for more than 10 years and is required to reduce congestion, provide better access to Fiona Stanley Hospital and help the Murdoch Activity Centre (MAC) meet its economic potential as a major employment and research centre.

If you live, work or play in and around Murdoch, Bull Creek, Bateman, Leeming, Kardinya or Winthrop, you are encouraged to find out more about the new Murdoch Drive Connection Project.
