Published on Wednesday, 29 May 2024 at 10:00:00 AM



Final finishing works for the 700m of path constructed will be completed in early June. A new all-ability ramp to the gabion river crossing is stage 2 of this project, with works anticipated to be undertaken in the summer of 2024/25.



Drainage improvement works are continuing with an anticipated completion date of mid-June.



Road upgrade works on a section of Southampton Rd, at the intersection with Spring Gully Rd, will be completed early June.



Winter Grading will commence in June, starting with roads in the Balingup area.



Replacement works for Bridge 3275 on Upper Capel Rd (near Claymore Road Intersection) are ongoing. A road closure at the Upper Capel Rd Bridge is currently in place and will be extended until the end of June 2024, due to delays in materials arriving from the eastern states. The Shire appreciates the inconvenience that this may cause some users, and asks that you please contact the Shire should you want to discuss further.
