Main Roads Western Australia South Western Highway Realignment Burekup

Project Overview

Our South West Region is undertaking a project to realign a 1.7km section of the South Western Highway in Burekup between Russell Road and Raymond Road. This will include the construction of a new bridge over the Collie River and a culvert over the Collie River floodway. Work commenced in September 2015 and is expected to finish in April 2016.

The project will:

  • Provide a safer and modern road and bridge with safety barriers.
  • Cater for increasing traffic volumes, especially heavy vehicles.
  • Improve safety for locals accessing Burekup.
  • Replace the existing deteriorating bridges with modern, durable structures with a longer life span and less maintenance liability and costs.
  • Improve erosion control of the bridge and culvert structures, and protect the natural river bank using rocks.
