Overview

The existing two-lane road has narrow seal width, narrow gravel shoulders and steep batters. Works will be undertaken in stages over several years to address these safety concerns by:

  • Widening the existing road and constructing sealed shoulders
  • By flattening slopes and removing roadside hazards

Works east of Dwellingup: Widening works (earthworks and pavement installation) and drainage improvements have been completed.

Works west of Dwellingup: Completed in early-2018, we added a passing lane westbound and improved the recovery zone widths.

Project update

Sealing has been delayed due to wet weather and is expected to be completed by May 2020.

Environment

The environmental approval process is continuing for the remaining sections of road that will be upgraded in future years.

Benefits

  • Improved safety
  • Reduced risk of serious crashes
  • Support economic growth by enabling the effective movement of goods to support industry in the region.
