A new freeway interchange is under construction at Bald Hills Road in Mount Barker. Tonkin Consulting are the lead consultant for Bardavcol, who were awarded the contract by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) in March 2015.
The project has been designed to cater for the expected population growth of 25,000 people in the area over the next 15 years. The new interchange will improve travel times and road safety for commuters travelling to the east side of Mount Barker and will reduce congestion in Mount Barker.
Construction commenced in June 2015 and is expected to be complete by mid 2016.
