A three-year, staged program of safety improvements, to address road width and geometry issues, is underway on South Coast Highway.
Mead Road Passing Lane was completed in June 2019 and included construction of a westbound passing lane between Killarney Road and Monty’s Leap Winery, along with widening works and a two metre sealed shoulder in each direction.
Work on the Kalgan section, which included widening the existing pavement from seven metres to 11 metres from Monty’s Leap Winery to the Kalgan River Bridge, was completed in April 2020.
The third and final stage of this safety improvement program, which is currently underway, includes reconstruction and widening of the highway, and construction of two passing lanes between Bluff Creek and Kojaneerup West Road.
Once completed the project will provide safer travelling opportunities and improved transport efficiencies.
South Coast Highway Closed
South Coast Highway between Kojaneerup West Road and Cheynes Beach Road is closed in both directions from 4 January to May 2021 (24 hour works).
This closure is for your safety and the safety of road workers. It will reduce the construction period and traffic disruptions. Local access only.
Please see the map for details.
