Stephenson Avenue Extension Project

The Stirling City Centre project is designed to accommodate the growth of the City in a way that allows for people to live, work and play locally. The first stage of this exciting project is the construction of Stephenson Avenue extension.

Delivered over three phases, the extension project includes the construction of a new freeway interchange and the Stephenson Avenue Road Network that runs through the middle of 55 hectares of land-locked vacant land.

As well as opening up large areas of land for development, the project will reduce traffic along Scarborough Beach Road. Reducing traffic along Scarborough Beach Road will free up road capacity for the future construction of dedicated bus lanes and ultimately a light rail system.

Following a $60 million commitment by the Western Australian State Government and a $65 million commitment by the Federal Government, delivery is expected to commence in 2019 over three phases, with different agency responsibilities, City of Stirling and Main Roads WA (MRWA):

Phase 1: Stephenson Ave, Scarborough Beach Road – Howe Street (delivered by the City)

Phase 2: Freeway interchange delivered by Main Roads WA (delivered by MRWA)

Phase 3: Stephenson Ave, Howe St – Cedric St (delivered by the City and/or MRWA).
