Traffic chaos as drivers flee Perth ahead of lockdown - Today News Post News Today || Headlines Today

Traffic chaos has descended on the Mitchell and Kwinana freeways as people race against time in an apparent bid to escape Perth’s looming lockdown.

Despite Perth and Peel residents being banned from entering other WA regional areas throughout the lockdown, traffic was bumper-to-bumper heading south on the Kwinana Freeway ahead of the Anzac Day long weekend.

Country residents who have visited Perth or Peel since April 17 are required to wear a mask throughout the State.

Nearly 3000 people are also being kicked off Rottnest Island ahead of the lockdown.
