Jointly funded by the Australian (80%) and State Governments (20%), the $250 million project to build Stages 1 and 2 of the Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation will improve safety and efficiency for road users, creating social and economic opportunities for the local community and broader South West Region.
We understand and respect areas associated with the Pinjarra Massacre and recognise these are both culturally sensitive to the Aboriginal community and highly significant in terms of national heritage.
Consequently, in April 2023, we are recommencing community and stakeholder engagement with Traditional Owners and their community members to help inform the project.Read our project update for more details.
The project aims to provide an alternative route for heavy vehicles around the town that will:
- reduce congestion and improve safety on central town streets (South Western Highway, George Street and Pinjarra Williams Road)
- greatly improve safety for pedestrians and local drivers
- enable the development of an activated town centre.
