Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 17 April 2012

A new intersection on the Tonkin Highway has opened which will provide additional access to and from the International Terminal at Perth Airport and should substantially improve traffic congestion in the local area for road users.

The intersection is located north of the current Tonkin Highway/Leach Highway intersection and connects Tonkin Highway to Dunreath Drive on the Perth Airport estate which leads to the International Terminal.

We commissioned a report which looked through a variety of options, and a new traffic light controlled left-in and right-out access to Tonkin Highway was recommended as the best option to alleviate congestion in the area, said Perth Airport Chief Executive Officer, Brad Geatches. In addition, traffic modelling was conducted and indicated that the traffic flow on Tonkin highway would also improve as traffic would favour the new route and free up Tonkin Highway. Weve committed a total investment of A$10 million into the intersection to improve the flow of traffic in the area and enable a more positive experience for our customers.

The intersection will allow an additional access point to the International Terminal until the state governments Gateway WA project commences to improve the safety and efficiency of the road network servicing Perth Airport.

Mr Geatches said the link road is purely for transport to and from the International Terminal and people wishing to access the Domestic Terminals should continue to use Brearley Avenue.

The intersection is traffic light controlled and synchronised with the Tonkin/Leach Highway traffic lights, has wide accessible lanes and is clearly sign posted, he said.
