COLLIER Road will be closed next weekend to facilitate the removal of temporary roundabouts and commissioning traffic lights on the Collier Road bridge.

Road users are urged to use alternative routes to access Collier Road.

The works are part of the NorthLink WA project, which will extend Tonkin Highway to six lanes.

Traffic will become free-flowing with the removal of traffic lights at Collier Road, Morley Drive and Benara Road.

Following the works, there will be two lanes of traffic in each direction on Collier Road, traffic lights on the bridge and pedestrian paths opening between Embleton Avenue and Beechboro Road South and Grey and Jackson streets.

Works to complete landscaping will continue around the interchange which will involve lane closures, speed reductions and traffic management.

Collier Road will be closed between Grey, Jackson and Wright streets from 8pm on Friday, February 16 to 5am Monday, February 19.

Access to businesses in this section will be available with traffic management in place.

Tonkin Highway will remain open but there will be no access to Collier Road.

There will be no restricted vehicle access to surrounding industrial area.

Bus services on Collier Road between Grey and Jackson streets and Beechboro Road South will be impacted.
