Project Update

In 2015 we commenced consultation with potentially affected landowners, the local community, local government and other key stakeholders.Open Study Overview PDF which we distributed, outlining the six feasible route options and associated benefits and considerations.

We are assessing the feedback received from this consultation and liaising with various key stakeholders to identify a preferred alignment.

Once a preferred corridor is selected, we will seek endorsement of a preferred alignment from the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).

Further engagement with landowners and key stakeholders will then be undertaken as part of the work to refine the final alignment.

Geraldton North South Highway

Planning has been undertaken to identify a future road corridor between Devlin Pool Road/Brand Highway (south) and Webberton Road/North West Coastal Highway (north). With work currently progressing on the Dongara Northampton Planning Study, the Geraldton North South Highway planning study is no longer considered a state priority.
