Wellington Street infrastructure works

Between mid-May and mid-July 2019, essential infrastructure works will take place on Wellington Street to facilitate future connection of essential services to the Perth City Link development.

Lane closures and traffic diversions will be in place during this time with works occurring in two stages.

Stage 1

Wellington Street eastbound approaching Milligan Street will experience some lane closures and diversions from 18 May to mid-June.

Eastbound motorists approaching Milligan Street will merge down to one lane. This lane will allow for through traffic only. Right turn movements for Milligan Street will be detoured via Queen Street and Murray Street. Left turn movements for Milligan Street/RAC Arena will be detoured via Telethon Avenue.

Telethon Avenue will be converted to one-way traffic; with no access to Telethon Avenue from Milligan Street and no access to Wellington Street from Telethon Avenue. Telethon Avenue will also facilitate Transperth bus routes.

View the Stage 1 traffic map.

Stage 2

Wellington Street westbound, west of the Milligan Street intersection will experience full road closures with all traffic diverted from 22 June to mid-July.

Westbound motorists approaching Milligan Street will merge down to one lane and will be required to turn left into Milligan Street as Wellington Street will be closed beyond this point. The detour will be via Milligan Street, Hay Street and George Street. An advanced detour will also be in place via King Street, Roe Street and Sutherland Street.
