Closed 6 Jul 2020

Opened 25 May 2020


Main Roads Western Australia (the proponent) proposes to construct and operate a new section of the Great Northern Highway(GNH), the Bindoon Bypass. This will be a new 48 kilometre (km) section of the GNH within the Shires of Chittering and Gingin. The new section of road will bypass the town of Bindoon and consist of a combination of four-lane dual carriageway, four-lane single carriageway and two-lane single carriageway as well as a bridge over the Brockman River. The Bindoon Bypass will divert from the existing GNH at the Chittering Roadhouse, running to the west of Bindoon and re-joining the GNH north of Calingiri Road.

The proposal includes the clearing and disturbance of 503 hectares (ha) of native vegetation, trees over pasture and cleared land within a 2,552.5 ha development envelope. This consists of 120 ha of native vegetation, 374 ha of trees over pasture and nine hectares of cleared land.
