Let's hope they add on "when building major roadworks, be sure to plan suitable bike paths at the same time" so they don't have to hodge podge a solution later.

Unfortunately I was stuck at work on the other side of the city and couldn't go.

I did come across a list of Main Roads PSP projects out to 2023 but it is pretty much just a list of the WABN priority projects minus the Armadale line PSP which seems to have been abandoned by Main Roads (possibly picked-up by ToVP and DoT as bicycle boulevard works rather than completely abandoned).

The works include:
Mitchell Freeway PSP- Glendalough to Hutton & Civic Place to Erindale
Fremantle PSP- Grant St to North Fremantle
Kwinana Freeway PSP- Cranford Ave Grade Separation & Thelma St to Mt Henry Bridge upgrade
Midland PSP- Swan River PSP Bridge (AT) Guildford
