Federal and State Funding to provide Jurien Bay to Brand Highway upgrades to Indian Ocean Drive

Published on Tuesday, 15 March 2022 at 8:00:00 AM

A $55million joint funding project between both Federal and State Governments to upgrade Indian Ocean Drive between Jurien Bay and the Brand Highway are due to commence later this year by Main Roads WA.

Significant traffic increases have highlighted deficiencies in the existing section of road from Jurien Bay through to the Brand Highway. Upgrade works will include 65kms of widened road, new passing lanes, audible edge lines, and realignment of curves. These upgrades will significantly improve road safety and provide a safer route to cater for the increase in commuter and tourism traffic.

The project will be undertaken in two stages with Stage 1 due to commence late 2022 and take approximately 5 months to complete. Stage 2 is planned to commence late 2023.

For more detailed information on the planned upgrades and traffic impact, please refer to the attached Project Update Information Sheet and map.
