Works update - April

Works will take approximately 2 weeks to complete and will be carried out during the hours of 7am to 4pm week days only. There will be lane closures during these works due to machinery encroaching onto the road and appropriate traffic controls will be in place during these times. There will be minimal detours and lane closures. Should you have any queries regarding these closures, please contact the Shire Works Depot on 9780 5255.


Rails to Trails - In the next few weeks works will be carried out in the section of Rails to Trails from Burnside Road to Ellen Brook Road. There will be a pedestrian/bicycle detour at the nearest bridge to Burnside Road. Date of works commencing to be advised.

Anyone wanting to receive alerts about shark sightings in the Margaret River area can follow @SLSWA on Twitter or refer to the Surf Life Saving WA facebook page.
