TRAFFIC congestion around Jandakot airport is expected to ease with the recent completion of 1.5km worth of road works.
The $8m major road improvement project around the intersection of Jandakot Road and Berrigan Drive also includes the new Pilatus Street entry to the airport.
As well as the new southern airport entry, other improvements include new traffic lights at the intersection of Berrigan Drive and Jandakot Road, replacing a roundabout, and 600m of double lanes on Berrigan Drive.
Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the project was a response to the community’s ongoing concern about the area.
“The new and upgraded roads, particularly the new traffic light-controlled intersection, will help ease traffic congestion, especially at peak travel times,” he said.
