Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation

  • Project typeRoad Infrastructure
  • Project scheduleStage one commencing 2023

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

  • Redirect approximately 690 trucks a day away from the centre of town
  • Increase pedestrian safety and enable revitalisation works to progress
  • Address population growth and road capacity concerns
  • Complete a key piece of Western Australian freight infrastructure
  • Activate the Pinjarra Industrial Area

Stage one | $27.5M

Main Roads WA is progressing stage one of the Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation.

Diverting traffic to the east of the town centre along Pinjarra-Williams Road, stage one addresses town centre road capacity and pedestrian safety issues and ensures pivotal upgrades are undertaken on Pinjarra-Williams Road and at its intersection with South Western Highway.

This foundational phase will be complete by 2024.

Stage two | $80M

A longer-term priority project, stage two of the Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation will complete a key piece of Western Australian freight infrastructure that will cater for increased road freight demand, to service 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.

Stage two also aligns with the proposed future Tonkin Highway extension to South Western Highway north-east of North Pinjarra, thus completing a major north-south road freight transport spine of the greater Perth Metropolitan area.

Western deviation | $10M

The integrated transport network will be complete through the construction of a western deviation, which will link Pinjarra Road and Greenlands Road to 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.

Together with stage two of 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 by 2050.

A total investment of $90 million is required to complete this key piece of Western Australia’s road infrastructure, which will deliver jobs and enable economic growth.
