Great Northern Highway - Bindoon Bypass

Closed 21 Sep 2017

Opened 15 Sep 2017

Overview

The proposal is to construct and operate a new 48 km section of the Great Northern Highway within the Shire of Chittering. The proposal would bypass the town of Bindoon located approximately 70 km north east of Perth, Western Australia. The Proposal would consist of a combination of four lane dual carriageway, four lane single carriageway and two lane single carriageway and would divert from the existing GNH at the Chittering Roadhouse running west of Bindoon and re-joining the GNH between Hay Flat Road and Calingiri West Road.

Why We Are Consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What Happens Next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
