York Heavy Haulage Route Identification - Community Workshop

Published: Wednesday, 17 May 2017 at 3:42:51 PM


Main Roads is working with the Shire of York and the Wheatbelt Development Commission to identify a heavy haulage bypass route in York.

The study aims to:

  • Plan road infrastructure well in advance to meet future residential and industrial development needs
  • Investigate options that can improve safety by removing heavy vehicles from the York town site and heritage sites

The community has contributed valuable information to the project through the two drop in sessions that were held in December 2016 and March 2017 and we thank all participants for their input.

The York community is being invited to have input into a planning study for the future York Heavy Haulage Bypass Route. To maximise stakeholder participation in the planning process, a Community Workshop is being held, and community members and businesses are invited to participate.

The Community Workshop will be an opportunity to hear more information about the project and give your thoughts on the priority of the project elements and the location.

Details are:
