Bunbury Outer Ring Road

We are building a 27-kilometre proposed free-flowing highway linking Forrest Highway to Bussell Highway. Providing an alternative route around Bunbury, the project consists of three sections – Northern, Central and Southern.

Northern Section - Forrest Highway to Boyanup Picton Road

Interchanges will be constructed at Forrest Highway, Raymond Road, South Western Highway, Waterloo and Willinge Drive.

Willinge Drive, one of the larger interchanges, will provide access to Bunbury Port. We’re also planning to extend Willinge Drive to South Western Highway, providing new access for the timber industry.

Central Section - Boyanup Picton Road to South Western Highway

Completed in May 2013, the four-kilometre Central Section included the extension of Port Access Road (Willinge Drive).

Southern Section - South Western Highway to Bussell Highway

The Southern Section will include interchanges at Bussell Highway and Centenary Road, and a connection to Jules Road.

There will be a full connection at South Western Highway, providing better access for Bunbury CBD and Ferguson Valley.
