Project Description

The Albany Ring Road is a proposed heavy haulage route around the City of Albany for the transport of product including grain, fertiliser and woodchips to and from the Albany Port. The Albany Ring Road will link the existing major arterial roads and highways radiating from Albany, and provide improved access to the Mirambeena Industrial Estate. The Australian Government contributed funding for detailed planning and design of Stages 2 and 3 of the Albany Ring Road:

  • Stage 2 – Lower Denmark Road section through to Hanrahan Road; and
  • Stage 3 – North-South section linking Albany Highway to South Western Highway and Lower Denmark Road.

Stage 1 of the Albany Ring Road was completed in 2007.

Benefits

Completion of the ring road improves the movement of freight into and out of the Port, provides better access to the Mirambeena Industrial Estate, takes trucks and cars off local streets, and delivers safer, less-congested driving conditions along the Albany and South Coast highways.

Funding

The Australian Government and the Western Australian Government committed $500,000 each towards the project.

Timetable

The planning project commenced in November 2013 and was completed in January 2015.
