The project will upgrade priority sections of the Great Northern Highway between Muchea and Wubin, including bypasses and other realignments; intersection upgrades, construction of rest areas, and widening and construction of additional overtaking lanes.
The upgrade will improve freight productivity, reduce travel times and improve safety on a national network highway that is a key link for the transport of equipment and supplies to the resources industry in the north of Western Australia.
The Australian Government is contributing $275.8 million towards the $344.75 million project.
The Miling Straight Realignment was completed in June 2018 with minor finishing works expected to be complete in September 2018. Construction on the Miling Bypass and Pithara sections commenced in April 2018 and is expected to be complete by mid-2019. Construction on the Muchea North Realignment is expected to commence in mid-2018. The full project is expected to be completed in early 2020.
