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 opened in April 2022.
The second stage of the project, 11km north of Seven Mile Hill, is under construction, due for completion in mid-2024. Planning for the remaining 46km section will continue through 2024.
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.
