Busselton bypass on track

THE construction of a new Busselton bypass is set to begin after Henry Walker Eltin Contracting won the right to the project.

The project, worth $14.5 million, a 10.7 kilometre bypass constructed as well as the upgrading of the adjoining section of Bussell Highway from west of the Sabina River Bridge to Causeway Road.

Transport Minster Murray Criddle said the Busselton bypass would form an important part of the regional road network for the South West.

“The bypass will be constructed from Causeway Road to Bussell Highway at the Vasse town site and will incorporate two new bridges to carry traffic over the Vasse River and the Vasse River diversion,” Mr Criddle said.

“The road is ultimately planned to be a dual carriageway. However, initially it will be constructed as a single carriageway except for two short sections near Queen Elizabeth Avenue and at the western end of the bypass.

“It will be linked to the existing road network via a roundabout at the Causeway Road intersection and a smaller roundabout at the Bussell Highway intersection at Vasse,” he said.

Work will start immediately, with construction of the bypass expected to be complete early in 2001.
