Weddell Freeway Planning Study

Latest update

Tender awarded for Weddell Freeway Planning Study.

The Northern Territory Government is undertaking a planning study for the potential development of the Weddell Freeway.

Commencing from Tiger Brennan Drive, the proposed freeway will run adjacent to the railway line west of the Palmerston Town Centre, travel through to the area of Weddell before connecting to the Stuart Highway near Cox Peninsula Road.

The preliminary alignment of the freeway is already defined and zoned under the Northern Territory Planning Scheme as a proposed main road, which reserves land for future development as a significant road transport infrastructure corridor.

The planning study and eventual concept design for a Weddell Freeway is underpinned by over 30 years of planning, and was recently included in public consultations for the Darwin Regional Land Use Plan 2015.
