​​​​​​​​​​​​​Albany Ring Road

Under constructionUnder Construction

Constructing a heavy haulage freight route around the City of Albany for transport of goods to and from the Port of Albany.

Menang Drive and Albany Highway interchange complete

What's happening

 On Sunday 19 May the final section of the Albany Ring Road project, between South Coast Highway and Hanrahan Road / Frenchman Bay Road opened to traffic.

A temporary reduced speed limit of 60 km/h is intended as a short-term measure to allow road users to become familiar with the new road layout. We encourage all road users to drive according to the conditions of the road.

Remaining project works will be carried out over the winter months, including the installation of artworks developed by local artists, whose concepts take inspiration from the local landscapes.

The completion of the path linking the Frenchman’s Bay Road interchange with Grey Street West will also be undertaken in late 2024.

 Important changes for port-bound heavy vehicles from 19 May

Port-bound heavy vehicles travelling from Chester Pass Road, South Coast Highway or Albany Highway towards Albany must turn onto Albany Ring Road (Menang Drive) and continue south along the Ring Road all the way to the port. 

There will be changes to the Restricted Access Vehicle (RAV) network on Hanrahan Road for port-bound heavy vehicles. Please visit the Main Roads Heavy Vehicles website for more information.

 New flyover to connect Chester Pass Road and Menang Drive, maximising the benefits of the Albany Ring Road

The State Government has committed to construction of a new flyover at the intersection of Menang Drive and Chester Pass Road. The project will complete the Albany Ring Road project and provide heavy vehicles with a non-stop connection from Chester Pass Road to Albany Port.

The project will allow southbound vehicles to exit Chester Pass Road via a new elevated ramp, which will pass back over the top of Chester Pass Road in the form of a bridge and connect into Menang Drive westbound.
