Works on the 820m extension of Munibung Road to connect Boolaroo to Cardiff are now complete, with the road open to the public from Friday 24 April 2020.

Why extend Munibung Road?

The connection of Munibung Road is expected to reduce travel times and alleviate congestion on the alternative route, which experiences significant queues at peak times through Argenton, Glendale and Cardiff.

The extension also provides better access to regional facilities including Cardiff Industrial Estate and Cardiff Central Business District.

Now complete, the extension of Munibung Road will also facilitate the development of more than 800 new homes and 20 hectares of commercial land.

The project was funded by the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund and Council.
