Lane diversions removed as barrier works near completion

The lane diversions on the Mitchell Freeway have been removed.

The diversions, on the freeway’s northbound lanes, were removed last night – two weeks ahead of schedule.

The lane diversions and speed restrictions were put in place to allow the Public Transport Authority to upgrade safety barriers between the freeway and the railway line over a 600m stretch near Stirling Station. 

Some minor off-peak diversions may still be required before the works are finalised this Friday (February 5). 

The work is part of the PTA’s program to upgrade barriers to make them consistent with the wire-rope and concrete barriers used along the Mandurah Line. 

The Mandurah Line safety barriers were adopted as a result of a comprehensive risk analysis undertaken by a specialist consultant in cooperation with Main Roads, and uniform barrier standards resulting from the American National Cooperative Research Program.  In Australia, these standards have been adopted as AS/NZ 3845 (Road Safety Barriers).
