Part of the Perth Freight Link, the Roe 8 project is set to be undertaken by CPB Contractors, with partners AECOM, Georgiou, GHD, BG&E and WA Limestone. The project will see the 5km extension of the Roe Highway from Kwinana Freeway to Stock Road in Coolbellup.

The project will create approximately 500 construction jobs within the region, and provide stronger transport links, providing improved access routes, enabling increased levels of safety within the region by redirecting freight vehicles from Leach Highway and Sterling Highway and provide increased access to Perth Airport and Fiona Stanley Hospital, in addition to the inner and outer harbour.

CPB Contractors Managing Director Román Garrido said, “The Roe 8 project will enhance Perth’s road network operations, improve safety and reduce congestion.

Working closely with Main Roads Western Australia, our experienced Alliance is focused on delivering value for money, mitigating construction impacts and achieving the project’s planned operational, community and environmental benefits through innovative design.”

With regards to sustainability, $45 million has been invested to ensure that access to specific areas will not be impacted, such as Roe Swamp, alongside the building of new pedestrian and cycling routes. Areas within the construction site will also be re-vegetated in order to minimise potential encironmental disruption.

Aboriginal heritage experts have also been employed in order to respect the land and ensure all important features are taken into account.
