Graham Farmer Freeway Stage 2

Graham Farmer Freeway is a six and a half-kilometre link, connecting Rivervale and Burswood, with West Perth and Leederville, and providing an East-West bypass of the central business district. The name of this inner-city freeway is in honour of the Australian rules footballer, Graham ‘Polly’ Farmer, who played between 1953 and 1971 in both the West Australian and Victorian Football Leagues.

Stage 2 of the Graham Farmer Freeway includes:

  • dual three-lane carriageways nearly four kilometres long;
  • three interchanges, nine bridges including the 406-metre-long Windan Bridge across the Swan River;
  • relocation of the Perth-Armadale railway line;
  • a new station and footbridge at Belmont Park; and
  • shared paths and an underpass under East Parade.
