Margaret River Perimeter Road stage two to commence

A $22.8 million contract has been awarded to complete the construction of the Margaret River Perimeter Road, with works starting in September 2017, according to the government of Western Australia.

A Joint Venture between WBHO Infrastructure and SRG Civil would build stage two of the Perimeter Road to connect to the 1.8km section completed in 2015.

Stage two includes a further 5.2km of the Perimeter Road, plus a new 2.3km section of John Archibald Drive to complete a connection between the Perimeter Road and the town.

The road will reportedly improve safety in the town centre, taking the majority of heavy vehicles out of town and reducing congestion on the main street. It will also create a high standard, free-flowing route for inter-regional traffic that will no longer need to travel through the town.

"The Perimeter Road will take the majority of heavy vehicle and inter-regional traffic off the main street of Margaret River, allowing visitors and locals to enjoy increased safety and amenity in the town centre,” said Transport Minister Rita Saffioti.

"Completion of the Perimeter Road will enable the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River to commence its planned redevelopment of the town centre.

"Reduced travel times to other regional destinations and increased transport efficiency will provide economic benefits, including allowing producers to get their goods to market quicker."
