Reconstruction works are nearing completion to repair a section of the Western Explorer Road that slipped away in heavy rainfalls. These works include lowering the road to reduce the risk of future landslip and rebuilding the road up gradually in layers.
The road is expected to be opened to traffic, under one lane, in the week commencing 24 March 2014. The repairs are expected to be fully completed by the Easter holiday break.
The Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources (DIER) thanks the local community and tourists for their patience and understanding while we work towards reopening this important route. Public safety is paramount and all drivers must obey all regulatory road signage around the state, including road closures.
