Albany Ring Road
Albany Ring Road (ARR) is a proposed heavy haulage freight route around the City of Albany for the transport of grain, fertilizer, woodchips and other goods to and from the Port of Albany. Currently Albany Highway and South Coast Highway form the only available route for heavy vehicles travelling from inland areas to the Port of Albany.
ARR will link the existing major roads and highways radiating from Albany. It will bypass urban areas and improve access to the Mirambeena Strategic Industrial Area.
It will also provide an alternative route designed to improve traffic flow on the existing network by reducing heavy vehicle traffic, reducing congestion and enhancing safety for local and tourist traffic.
We are currently reviewing the design in conjunction with Arc Infrastructure, the City of Albany and other government agencies and key stakeholders to meet important safety standards and requirements.
Stage One: Chester Pass Road to Albany Highway on Menang Drive - Completed in 2007.
Stage Two: George Street through to Princess Royal Drive.
Stage Three: Albany Highway to Lower Denmark Road via Link Road / George Street.
As part of stage two and three of this project, we plan to:
- Build a single lane carriageway (one lane in each direction)
- Construct grade separated interchanges (one road goes over the other) with Albany Ring Road at Hanrahan Road/Frenchman Bay road, Albany Highway and South Coast Highway
