Busselton Outer Bypass

Planning is underway for the future Busselton Outer Bypass to remove regional traffic from the inner Busselton area.
Road through the trees

In conjunction with the City of Busselton and Department of Planning, we are finalising a planning study to confirm the alignment for the future Busselton Outer Bypass (BOB).

Once the study has been completed, final plans will be prepared so that the road reservation can be included in the City of Busselton’s Town Planning Scheme.

Continued traffic growth on the existing Busselton Bypass will result in delays, congestion and reduced safety for road users. Planning for a new BOB will cater for the expected future traffic volumes, and the existing bypass will operate as a district distributor road for local traffic.

Proposed works may include:

  • A four-lane freeway standard road between Sues Road and Marbellup Road, with provision for a future transit route in the central median.
  • The section to the west of Marbellup Road is being planned as a four lane divided highway.
  • A connection with the Vasse Dunsborough Link to the north.
  • Grade separated interchanges at Bussell Highway east /Sues Road, Vasse Highway, Ambergate and Bussell Highway west/Marbellup Road.
  • The Ambergate interchange will serve Ambergate North and areas to the south. Local roads will connect the interchange cross-road to Queen Elizabeth Avenue and Chapman Hill Road to distribute traffic on the road network.
  • Chapman Hill Road and Kaloorup Road will pass over the BOB with no connection.
  • Queen Elizabeth Avenue and Boallia Road will be closed either side of the BOB.
  • Intersections will be provided at North Jindong Road (southern side only) and at the Carbunup townsite access to the east.
