​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.

What we're doing

  • Contracts for construction of projects of this magnitude can take approximately 12 months to finalise, as such we have recently started the procurement process for delivery. See the recent media statement  for more information.
  • There is a new concept map for the southern alignment which includes proposed local road connections and the shared path for cyclists and pedestrians.
  • We are developing the local access strategy for the southern section and liaising with local stakeholders. The strategy will focus on local road access to the ring road.
  • Provide us with your thoughts on the key sustainability issues and opportunities on BORR. Visit Infrastructure Sustainability to find out more and take the survey.
  • ​We have referred the Southern Section of the Bunbury Outer Ring Road project to the (state) Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) and to the (federal) Department of the Environment and Energy (DoEE) for assessment. The EPA and DoEE will soon invite public comments on the level of assessment through the consultation hub  (EPA) and via epbc.comments@environment.gov.au (DoEE). To stay updated as to when these comment periods are active and to find out more about each agency's process, visit the EPA website  and/or the DoEE website .
