Dongara to Northampton

We are planning a future road corridor for a Dongara to Northampton coastal route to address long term freight requirements and alleviate pressure on existing roads.
Dongara to <em>Northampton</em>

Overview 

Brand Highway and North West Coastal Highway currently form the primary coastal freight route between Perth and the North West of Western Australia, linking the major population centres of Perth, Geraldton, Carnarvon and Karratha.

Both highways are subject to flooding, which causes road closures and restricts the flow of critical supplies to the towns of Geraldton and Northampton and the busy North West region. As the Mid-West region and Geraldton grows, traffic volumes will increase and safety will continue to be a focus for future roads.

We recognise that there needs to be a high standard, free-flowing route for regional and freight traffic that bypasses Geraldton city and other built up areas. It needs to provide a more efficient alternative for freight, large loads and local and tourist traffic. This study co-ordinates previous planning activities around Geraldton.
