• Construction of the 27-kilometre four-lane, high-standard road from Forrest Highway near Australind to Bussell Highway, south of Bunbury, is now underway.

WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti took part in a ground breaking ceremony for the Bunbury Outer Ring Road (BORR) project along with Nola Marino, Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Territories and local Member for Forrest; local Members Mick Murray and Don Punch; and Wardandi – Wilman Elders Yvonne Garlett and Peter Michael.

Work on the South West’s biggest road infrastructure project will unlock thousands of local jobs and economic benefits for the Greater Bunbury region.

First will be access roads and lay down yards for the construction of the interchange at Willinge Drive. This junction with BORR will provide improved freight access to Bunbury Port.

The Bunbury Outer Ring Road will reduce local congestion and increase efficiency for freight vehicles and regional traffic, while improving long-term access to the Bunbury Port. The project will support social and economic growth and development, enhance amenity on local roads by reducing freight and regional traffic, and create a safer road system for our community in Greater Bunbury and the South West region.
