Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation

  • Project typeRoad Infrastructure
  • Project schedulePlanning 2022-2024 | Design 2023-2025 | Construction 2026-2028

Construction of a heavy haulage deviation around the Pinjarra town centre:

  • Reduce congestion and improve safety on central town streets (South Western Highway, George Street and Pinjarra Williams Road)
  • Greatly improve safety for pedestrians and local drivers
  • Enable the development of an activated town centre. 

Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation

Funding of $250M has been secured through both the Australia and State Governments to undertake the full construction of the Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation to the east of Pinjarra.

The Deviation will provide an integral north-south road-freight network providing a deviation route to improve safety and activate the town centre. The project will provide for the increased freight demand to assist in servicing major State projects including the future outer harbour, Transform Peel and the Tonkin Highway extension which will bring thousands more heavy vehicles through Murray’s road network via South Western Highway.

Main Roads WA is progressing the planning and development activities and will ensure there is positive engagement and all necessary approvals are in place well before construction starts.

Western Deviation

The integrated transport network will be completed during the construction of a western deviation which will link Pinjarra Road and Greenlands Road. This will improve access to the Pinjarra Industrial Area and surrounding commercial precinct. The Western Deviation will further enable the downgrading of sections of Pinjarra Road and South Western Highway within and surrounding the Pinjarra town centre, into the Shire’s localised road network as well as improved traffic movements to better serve pedestrian activity.

The southern portion of the Western Deviation to link the Pinjarra Industrial Area (via Munday Avenue) to Greenlands Road has $2.5M of funding completed through the State Government with these works to be completed in early 2024.

Together with the Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation, this will establish Pinjarra as a destination, rather than a drive-through town, creating economic opportunities for tourism, business and industry expansion and will cater for the town’s anticipated population growth from 5,000 to 16,000 people by 2050.

A total investment of $282.5M is required to complete this key road infrastructure project and enable Pinjarra to progress to an Activation Hub for the region.
