Overview

We're realigning two kilometres of Great Eastern Highway in Wooroloo, to remove three substandard curves, and improve safety and visibility. The new section of highway will be built to the south of the current highway, on an alignment largely already cleared. We will also be reconstructing the highway's intersections with Old Northam Road and Wooroloo Prison Farm access road. 

Project Update​

​Project development is currently underway, with geotechnical and other site investigations planned from June.

Drivers will notice that minor works are being competed at the intersection of Old Northam Road and Great Eastern Highway in Sawyers Valley. This two-week upgrade is expected to commence in mid-June and includes new signs and line-marking.
