Bunbury Outer Ring Road

The proposed Bunbury Outer Ring Road is a 27 kilometre section of highway connecting Forrest Highway to Bussell Highway consisting of three sections – northern, central and southern.

  • The northern section is between Forrest Highway and Boyanup Picton Road.
  • The four kilometre central section was completed in May 2013, and connects Boyanup Picton Road and South western Highway, south of Bunbury (near Bunbury Airport). A three kilometre extension of Bunbury Port Access Road (Willinge Drive) was built at the same time.
  • The southern section is between South Western Highway and Bussell Highway.

The Commonwealth and State Governments announced a $2.3 billion infrastructure package for Western Australia in 2017. This included a $12.5 million allocation to complete the planning and project development of the unbuilt sections (northern and southern).

The preferred alignment for the southern section has been chosen. The State Government will proceed with planning the Bunbury Outer Ring Road's southern alignment through the existing road reserve.
