A new 64-kilometre section of the Great Northern Highway will be constructed between Chittering Roadhouse and New Norcia, bypassing the town of Bindoon to improve travel times, road safety and freight efficiency.

The first stage of the project, including 7km of new highway north of Calingiri Road, was completed in June 2022. 

The Bindoon Bypass coupled with the road upgrades between Muchea and Wubin will allow triple road train operations to travel south from the existing road train assembly area at Wubin to the new road train assembly area at Muchea, some 218 kilometres further south, avoiding the inefficient double handling currently required.

Benefits

  • Will allow 53.5 metre road trains to travel south to Muchea
  • Improve freight efficiency, connectivity and travel time
  • Improve road safety and reduce congestion for all road users
