Murchison Highway - Stitt River Bridge to Henty Main Road
These upgrades will provide a wider and safer road for all road users by widening road curves, and sealing shoulders and gravel edges.
More overtaking opportunities and strategically located truck pull-off and load checking sites for heavy vehicle users will also be created.
These sites will allow heavy vehicle operators space to safely check their loads.
The upgrades will be carried out in two stages:
Stage 1 of upgrades will include the Zeehan Highway between the Murchison Highway and Henty Main Road in Zeehan.
The construction contract for these upgrades will be tendered in August 2022.
Stage 2 of upgrades will include the Murchison Highway between Argent River/Serpentine Hill and Ring River.
The construction contract for these upgrades will be tendered in November 2022.
