This assessment brief outlines the Western Australian Government's proposal to build approximately 1.8 kilometres of dual carriageway and undertake a major intersection reconfiguration along the Leach Highway (High Street) in East Fremantle between Carrington Street and the Stirling Highway. The upgrade will reduce delays for freight vehicles, improve road capacity and improve network amenity along a section of urban arterial road. The Western Australian Government is seeking $57.2 million in Commonwealth funding for the project.

The Office of the Infrastructure Coordinator recommended that the project be included on the 2013 Infrastructure Priority List at Threshold, with conditions.
