Great Northern Highway
Great Northern Highway forms part of the National Highway Network. It provides a strategic freight link between Perth and the state’s north, as well as Darwin and the Northern Territory.
Stage One - Complete
Between 2000 and 2009, Stage One of the Great Northern Highway Muchea to Wubin Upgrade project was completed. We upgraded 76 km of the highway.
Stage Two - Complete
In 2014, we completed a comprehensive planning review of the full Muchea to Wubin link along the highway.
Following this review, we prioritised the following upgrades:
- Town bypasses
- Wider roads
- More passing lanes
- Flattening crests and easing curves
- Safer roadsides
- More rest stops
- Additional facilities for heavy vehicles.
Construction of the Great Northern Highway upgrades were completed in December 2020, providing over 90km of new highway, and improving safety and efficiency to all users. The project has provided a platform for the future Bindoon Bypass missing link for 53.5m vehicles.
