HistoryEdit

In 2010, construction started on a diamond interchange for the junction of Reid Highway and Mirrabooka Avenue to improve safety and efficiency. Between 1999 and 2009, there were 400 crashes at the intersection, resulting in 4 fatalities and 38 serious injuries. In 2011, the work was completed.[2]

In 2011, Mirrabooka Avenue was extended north from Hepburn Avenue to Gnangara Road.[3]

In March 2018, construction started on duplicating the last remaining section of single carriageway road, from Hepburn Avenue to Gnangara Road, which was completed in October 2018.[4]
