The shoulder sealing crew working between Merredin and Walgoolan are making good progress and should be finished in the next few weeks. The widening works and overtaking lane between Carrabin and Bodallin are also on track and should be finished in mid-November 2020. The pavement repair crew are working between Kellerberrin and Merredin over the next few weeks.

Main Roads will be undertaking a significant amount of road and bridge works on the Great Eastern Highway from August 2020 to improve road safety and freight efficiency.

On Monday, 10 August 2020, works will commence to seal the shoulders between Kellerberrin and Walgoolan. Works between Merredin and Kellerberrin will be completed in the first half of the program and between Merredin and Westonia in the second half of the program. Works are due to be completed in October.

Widening works and construction of an overtaking lane between Carrabin and Bodallin will recommence in September 2020 and are due to be completed by the end of the year. This will involve three work sites with manned traffic lights during the day.

In early 2021, the works on Bridge 0629 in Walgoolan will commence. The new bridge will be constructed away from the road and there will be little impact on the highway until the end of the works. Bridge 0630A at Moorine Rock will also be widened at the same time. Works are due to be completed by early 2022.

In early 2021, works to replace bridges in Coates Gully between Chedaring Road and Coates Road in the Shire of Northam will commence. The works are planned to be completed by June 2021.

In March 2021, intersection improvements at Malabaine Road and Hoggarth Road in the Shire of Northam are planned to commence and be completed by May 2021.

For the safety of road users and road workers, there will be lane closures and speed restrictions. Road users are urged to slow down when approaching worksites, obey all signs and signals and show courtesy to other road users. We understand this will involve delays to travel and we appreciate the patience of road users.
