WA Government commits to Narrogin Link Project

Western Australian Premier, Colin Barnett, has given the all clear on the final stage of the Narrogin Link Road Project, which will improve road safety in the town and allow road train access.

“Currently, truck operators have a difficult task negotiating the centre of Narrogin and are required to make four 90 degree right-angle turns,” Premier Barnett said. “The completion of the Link Road will eliminate these manoeuvres and allow road trains up to 36.5 metres long to travel safely through Narrogin.

“This will deliver enormous benefits to primary producers and transport operators by improving efficiencies and further improve the safety and amenity of the Narrogin town centre.”

The Premier said the project was funded through a $7.5million allocation in the 2014-15 State Budget and would be delivered under Main Roads WA management by the Shire of Narrogin utilising resources from the Town of Narrogin and other Wheatbelt local government authorities.

Premier Barnett said he expected full-scale work on the project would begin within the next few months, with Stage 1 – the 1.5km southern section of the road – to be delivered by the 2014-15 financial year.
