1.  Introduction 
In 2014 Main Roads Western Australia (Main Roads WA) established the Muchea to Wubin Integrated Project 
Team (M2W Team), comprising Main Roads WA and industry partners Arup and Jacobs (combining to form 
Arup Jacobs Joint Venture, ASJV) to conduct a comprehensive planning review of the full Muchea to Wubin link 
along the Great Northern Highway (GNH). This planning review is a critical component of the Great Northern 
Highway: Muchea to Wubin Upgrade Stage 2, which has been funded with $384.8 million from the Federal and 
State Governments.  
Among the improvements to be considered as part of the planning review were additional passing lanes, 
flattening crests and easing curves, safer roadsides, more rest stops and additional facilities for heavy vehicles. 
The review examined the previous upgrade strategy developed in the 1990s and, having carefully considered 
current requirements for the movement of people and freight, delivered a revised upgrade strategy.  
The M2W team has identified and prioritised construction packages to be delivered over the four-year period 
from 2015/16 to 2018/19. The construction programme includes the currently funded sections Muchea North / 
Chittering (13km), Bindoon South (2km), New Norcia (7kms), Lyons East Road to Pithara (46km, including 
Miling) and Dalwallinu to Wubin realignment (16km) and identifies additional priority packages to be constructed 
as funding becomes available.  
1.1 
Proposal Description 
1.1.1 
Purpose and Location 
Main Roads WA proposes to realign, upgrade and improve the GNH between Straight Line Kilometre (SLK) 147 
and SLK 256.8 (Walebing to Wubin). The project is located in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, 
approximately 144 km to 224 km from Perth (Figure 1-1). 
The works will be carried out in a number of discrete locations to address the deficiencies identified along 
specific stretches of the highway. In general, works will be undertaken to improve the horizontal and vertical 
geometry of the road, increase the seal and formation widths, and improve sight distances and clear zones. 
1.1.2 
Proposed Activities 
Construction activities will include: 
 
construction of new carriageway, upgrading of existing carriageway and construction of overtaking lanes; 
 
upgrade of existing and installation of new culverts on the existing (upgraded) GNH and new (realigned) 
carriageway; 
 
installation of safety barriers where required; 
 
realignment of a number of intersections to improve sight distances and access to the GNH; 
 
construction and realignment of private driveways and stock underpasses; 
 
construction of temporary tracks for traffic management during construction; 
 
restitution works to the existing GNH for farming purposes; 
 
removal of redundant pavement; 
 
relocation of services (power, communications and water); and 
 
installation of new road reserve fencing and gates and removal of old, redundant fencing and gates.
