Mandurah Road is the name given to two roads in the cities of Perth and Mandurah, Western Australia, which link together at Stakehill Road, Karnup.

Route description[edit]

The northern part starts in the Kwinana Beach industrial area. After 2 km and reaching the City of Rockingham boundary, it becomes a semi-rural single carriageway road which runs past wetlands east of Rockingham such as Lake Cooloongup and Lake Walyungup. It also provides access to the residential and rural-residential sections of the suburb of Baldivis.

The southern part starts at Stakehill Road and is a dual carriageway and part of National Highway 1. It is actually a continuation of Ennis Avenue coming from Rockingham. It continues to Mandurah, where it intersects with Mandjoogoordap Drive at a roundabout before crossing Pinjarra Road and heading west to meet Old Coast Road which is the main road to Bunbury and South West of Western Australia.

History[edit]

Until 2005, the road changed name at the City of Mandurah boundary line (between Singleton and Madora Bay) to "Fremantle Road", but this was changed by a decision of the City of Mandurah in September 2005.[1][2] This change has been recognised by the Government in the 2007 Streetsmart street directory.
