​North West Coastal Highway and Hosken Street Intersection, Geraldton

We are building a roundabout at the intersection of North West Coastal Highway and Hosken Street, near Bluff Point.

 

Latest news

Construction started on 23 April 2018. General working hours are 6.30am to 6pm, as per City of Greater Geraldton guidelines. Work may also be undertaken on some Saturdays, but no night works are expected.

During construction, North West Coastal Highway will remain open to two-way traffic flow.

However, the following road closures will be in place from 26 April to support the works:

  • Hosken Street between Chapman Road and North West Coastal Highway;
  • Strickland Street/North West Coastal Highway intersection; and
  • Strickland Street/Horan Street intersection.

Detours and speed restrictions will be in place during these closures, but access will be maintained for local traffic.

The new roundabout should be completed by July 2018.

Project scope

The roundabout design was selected following community consultation in August 2017.

It will have four legs, including a new connection into Spalding, linking up with Horan Street. This additional connection will help facilitate an urban renewal program in Spalding, planned by the Department of Communities. It was also considered beneficial by members of the community who provided feedback.

For safety reasons, Strickland Street is also being modified to provide left-in, left-out access only to North West Coastal Highway and a cul-de-sac at the Horan Street end.
