I drive from Busselton to Perth regularly. It takes 40mins to get past last traffic light north of bunbury. another 30 mins to get to the southern end of the new highway. Currently it will take about 1 hr and 20 mins to reach the southern suburbs of perth going through mandurah.

Driving the new highway with an average speed of 105 km/h (half at 100 and half at 110) will take about 40 mins to travel the new highway. then another 20 for the rest of the freeway. A saving of 20 mins. though a 10 minute variation is possible with some minor speeding lol

These times are during non busy periods. In summer the saving could be well over an hour

Yeah that's what I thought too - about 20 mins saving in normal traffic. Can you do us a favour (I went to school and uni in Bunbury and Perth but don't live there any more) and keep an eye on the time to the roundabout at Bunbury forum from narrows bridge. That used to take me about 1:55 driving normal speeds - 115kph avg.

When authorities quote traffic times in these circumstances, the convention is to take a CBD to CBD approach. In that instance I would think that 30 minutes would be more than achievable...

They do but with if you were to start in the centre of bunbury and drive to the perth CBD it would not make a difference on the time. as the last bit (for me it would be roe to the city) is driven by someone taking both routes. so there will be no time savings or loss for either route. The same applies for the bunbury end.

30 minutes is more possible going north than south. about 5 more traffic lights. also if you were to get every red light the new route could be 40 minutes faster in normal times.

The planning has certainly been done. Ive seen detailed electronic drawings of interchanges as far north as Lukin Drive and beyond. Its just a matter of getting the go ahead for final design of the next stage (which is liable to be years away at the current rate).

Thanks B7. I wish they would actually extend it before the traffic starts to congest on the alternative routes and creates even heavier traffic jams that at present. it may actually help the area grow, imagine that!

too much bloody foresight for any government.

Speaking of the northern suburbs, I took the train to Clarkson last night. Pretty busy in peak!! Pity most of the passengers walk off the train and into their cars. The bus services are decent too, 20minutely or timed with every second train. It should be made more obvious so that people will be inclined to use it!! I'm sure most of those people live near a bus stop to the station...

I was surprised when I did the Clarkson run that I had to stand boarding at Edgewater heading northbound in the arvo peak. Lots got out at Joondalup but still most seats taken to the terminus.

Weren't many counter-peak pax though at 5:40pm but the train filled up closer to Perth

I hope Reid Highway is renamed Reid Freeway once all of the interchanges are done.
