Perth City Link - King Street extension access map
26 March 2018

King Street extension open

The long-awaited reconnection of the Perth CBD and Northbridge has arrived with the opening of the new King Street extension road.

After opening to pedestrians and cyclists in December 2017, the two-way road is now open to cars - providing a direct link between Wellington Street in the CBD and Roe Street in Northbridge in this area for the first time.

The King Street extension is one of five new connections being created as part of Perth City Link. At the heart of this new connection is Manatj Park, a new green open space surrounded by bars and eateries including the recently opened Market Grounds Tavern and ramen bar Ippudo.

Moving through the area

Pedestrians and cyclists: 

  • Direct access between Roe/Lake Streets and Wellington/King Streets
