The traffic flow either side of Busselton is smooth enough, but it’s a different story 50km north around Bunbury.

Driving the tourist dollar down south

OPINION: The state government’s renewed warmth towards tourism is a welcome, if belated, response to the end of the resources boom – but there are some kinks they should iron out.

Dear Mark, Your observations with regard to road access to South West destinations have resonance with people who reside and run businesses in the region. The Bunbury Outer Ring Road (BORR) appears on all planning documents relating to Greater Bunbury, and the first of three stages of the BORR was opened in 2013. The other two stages are planned but remain unfunded. The result is the efficiency, productivity and safety of freight and commuter traffic is compromised. Regards Matt Granger CEO Bunbury Wellington Economic Alliance
