​​​​​​​​​​​​​Albany Ring Road

Constructing a heavy haulage route around the City of Albany for the transport of grain, fertilizer, woodchips and other goods to and from the Port of Albany.
Heavy vehicles driving along Albany Ring Road

The Albany Ring Road will provide a freight route of 11.5 km around the City of Albany for the transport of grain, fertilizer, woodchips and other goods to the Port of Albany.

The Ring Road will link the existing major roads and highways radiating from Albany, bypassing urban areas and improving access to the Mirambeena Strategic Industrial Area.

It will also take heavy vehicles off existing roads, reducing congestion and enhancing safety for local and tourist traffic.

The first section of Albany Ring Road, from Chester Pass Road to Albany Highway along Menang Drive was completed in 2007.

The Commonwealth and State Governments have funded the Design & Construction of the remaining part of the project, which will extend the road from Albany Highway, heading south parallel to Link Road and north of the freight rail line before connecting into Princess Royal Drive.

Following extensive engagement with local stakeholders including the freight industry, the scope was expanded in early 2020 to include bridges at intersections of Albany Highway, South Coast Highway, Hanrahan Road, Frenchman Bay Road and the freight railway line.

  • Phase 1 of the project comprises a new interchange at Albany Highway and extension of the Ring Road south to Lancaster Road
  • Phase 2 comprises the remaining construction from Lancaster Road to Princess Royal Drive
