WBHO to deliver major upgrade to Great Eastern Highway

WBHO Infrastructure has won the contract to design and construct 15 new passing lanes on Great Eastern Highway between Southern Cross and Kalgoorlie.

The Main Roads project will improve road user safety and transport efficiency through the delivery of 44km of passing lanes distributed over the 225km section of the highway. Site works are scheduled to commence in September, with completion in March 2017.

WBHO’s General Manager Western Region Will Grobler said:

“The project will deliver significant improvements to this important route. The highway is the key link between Perth and the eastern states and more than 1,200 vehicles use it daily. Providing more passing opportunities will enhance safety and improve the efficiency of freight movements.

“WBHO is excited about working with Main Roads, local communities and businesses to deliver a high quality asset on time and safely, while minimising impact on traffic and the environment.”
