Bindoon Bypass

Great Northern Highway

Under constructionUnder Construction

A new 64 kilometre link between Chittering Roadhouse and New Norcia, bypassing the town of Bindoon.

What's happening

The first stage of the Bypass was opened in April 2022. Work included seven km of new highway north of Calingiri Road, extending to Seven Mile Hill (south of Mogumber-Yarawindah Road). 

The speed limit for the new section of highway is 110 km/h. Lanes may be closed intermittently as finishing works are completed. 

Aboriginal owned and operated business Garli completed the work in conjunction with our network contractor LendLease. They are currently seeking Federal Safety accreditation to be eligible to undertake further works independently.

Procurement for the 11 km northern section is underway, with the 46 km southern section scheduled to start procurement in 2023.
