"A main access road through many suburbs."

Alexander Drive is a main access road that starts in Dianella (previously 'joined' to Fitzgerald St from the city) and extends all the way to Gnangara Rd past the suburb of Landsale. To drive that distance would probably take 10-25 minutes depending on traffic. In the older section, near Dianella, there are houses fronting the main road and these would have significant traffic impact. I would not be happy to live with children or pets in that area just for safety concerns. Further on Alexander Dr goes through Malaga, where the is a main shopping area for home goods, the Malaga Markets and Bunnings. There are access roads into the main shopping area and parallel rds for other access, so there are no store driveway entries that affect the traffic. Beyond this Alexander Heights and Ballajura have houses backing or fronting the main rd, some with parallel access so dirveways do not lead directly on to Alexander Dr. There is a lot of traffic going past these houses but past this area there is a clean stretch through to Gnangara Rd.
  • A relatively straight forward drive from the city to the mid position northern suburbs.
  • Public transport, buses, access and there is a bike path.
  • Very busy and would not live in houses nearby.
  • Very hilly in some spots for walkers and cyclists.
