Artist design for Bunbury Outer Ring Road project

What's happening

Artists briefing

The Urban Design and Landscaping strategy has identified several locations to showcase artwork from local artists. These locations will be integrated into bridges and other infrastructure along the alignment and will not be standalone pieces of art.

Local artists interested in relief artwork opportunities on the project are invited to a briefing. During this briefing, information will be provided on the expression of interest to provide artwork for the bridge at the Bunbury Outer Ring Road and Bussell Highway interchange.

  • When: 25 May from 1pm to 2.30pm
  • Where: BORR Community Hub; Maker + Co building 75 Victoria Street, Bunbury (side door entry off Symmons Street)

Let us know if you intend to join in person or online. A Microsoft Teams meeting link can be provided for those who are unable to attend in person.

Forrest Highway progressing well

The crossover works being completed in the Forrest Highway median have been progressing well over the past few months, and teams have been focused on ensuring works are completed this month so the next stages can get underway.

Eight million tonnes of sand to be imported

More than two million tonnes of sand has been imported for foundations, laydown areas and embankments. 

Ground improvement works are underway at Raymond Drive interchange to increase ground stability for the future bridge to sit on. As part of this work, more than 200 concrete columns will be constructed, which are eight metres long and 450 mm in diameter. 

With winter on the way, our focus remains on delivering fill across all project sites in the northern and central sections, as well as drainage to ensure we are well prepared for the rain. We are also making good progress on fencing, piling, and service relocations
