The next stage of safety improvements along South Coast Highway were announced in a joint statement by the Transport and Road Safety Minister in November 2016.
These works between Pfeiffer Road and Cheynes Beach Road are set to commence in February 2017, following the $5 million funding announcement to improve road safety along this section of South Coast Highway.
South Coast Highway links the City of Albany and the town of Esperance, providing an important freight transport corridor servicing the ports of Albany and Esperance.
It is a major east-west inter-regional route that connects Ravensthorpe, Boxwood Hill, Jerramungup and Esperance through to Albany.
Works along South Coast Highway have occurred in a staged approach in recent years.
Construction is currently underway on the first stage of the Pfeiffer Road to Cheynes Beach Road project. This involves the reconstruction and minor realignment of a four-kilometre section of the highway.
This next stage of works involves a 2.5 kilometre reconstruction and realignment of South Coast Highway, directly adjacent to the Cheynes Beach Road intersection.
Subject to final environmental approvals, works for this next stage are scheduled to be completed by April 2017.
The project will deliver improved road safety and shorter travel times for motorists.
