Serious flooding as a result of heavy rainfall associated with Tropical Cyclone Ellie during the 2022/23 summer caused significant damage to parts of the road network in the Kimberley. Main Roads Western Australia crews have commenced recovery and repair works. Three main areas were affected:

Great Northern Highway, Willare section: Preliminary repairs have been completed and the highway is open with traffic management. Permanent repair work has commenced. 

Fitzroy Crossing Bridge: The bridge sustained significant flood damage and is being demolished to allow construction on a new bridge to commence. A temporary two-lane low-level crossing has been constructed to cater for all vehicles, subject to weather conditions. Visit Main Roads' Fitzroy River Bridge project page for full details. 

Gibb River Road: Gibb River Road is open to all vehicles with normal maintenance works in progress.
