Project Description

The Albany Ring Road is a proposed heavy haulage route around the City of Albany that will allow large freight trucks to bypass local traffic to and from the Port of Albany. The Albany Ring Road will link the existing major arterial main roads and highways radiating from Albany, and provide improved access to the Mirambeena Industrial Estate.

The location of the Port of Albany, adjacent to the Central Business District, presents a challenge in the facilitation of freight movement. Freight traffic is constrained by ‘stop-start’ traffic resulting from a number of level crossings and roundabouts on the main freight routes through Albany.

The project will construct the remaining stages of the Albany Ring Road:

  • stage two - provides the connection from George Street through to Princess Royal Drive
  • stage three - connects Albany Highway to the Lower Denmark Road via the Link Road/George Street alignment

Benefits

The project will:

  • improve freight productivity and access to freight gateways
  • improve connectivity between major freight infrastructure including airports and commercial and industrial areas
  • improve road safety

Funding

The Australian Government has committed $140 million towards the project.

Timetable

The project is in planning.
