Great Eastern Highway Widening
Anzac Drive to Gatacre Drive
This section of Great Eastern Highway, passing through the industrial and commercial estate, was the only section of the highway within the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder which was a single lane in each direction.
More than 8,000 vehicles a day will benefit from this upgrade, many of which are heavy vehicles up to 53.5 metres long. The upgrade works have made the movement of all traffic, including heavy vehicles, safer and more efficient.
Improvements to this section of road included:
- Widening the existing road to two lanes in each direction
- Intersection upgrades
- Improving drainage
- Construction of driveways to properties
- Relocation of public utilities (water, power and communication services)
- Installation of footpaths
