Safer journeys in the Wheatbelt
A major milestone has been reached, with the first 7 km of new highway open between Calingiri Road and Seven Mile Hill.
Published: 15 June 2022, Updated: 15 June 2022
The Bindoon Bypass project includes 64 km of new highway and aims to improve safety and freight efficiency by reducing the number of heavy vehicles passing through Bindoon.
Procurement for the remaining 11 km northern is scheduled to commence soon. Procurement to develop, design and construct the 46 km southern section will begin in 2023.
The new section of road was delivered by Garli, a local Aboriginal-owned and operated business, who worked in conjunction with our network contractor, LendLease.
This work has enabled Garli to obtain pre-qualification who are currently seeking Federal Safety accreditation to undertake further works independently.
The project's major focus has been increasing Aboriginal engagement, with 53 percent of Aboriginal employment achieved, over 90 percent expenditure by Aboriginal businesses, and 11 Aboriginal companies procured.
