What's Happening

The Bunbury Outer Ring Road (BORR) when complete, will ease congestion and provide a safer and more efficient traffic route for locals, freight, and the broader community.

The current construction works along Bussell Highway will connect BORR with the highway and the surrounding local roads more efficiently through an innovative ‘Y’ interchange. To enable construction, road closures and traffic control will be implemented starting in early June 2024.
