Temporary closures of Menang Drive and Albany Highway – 29 November to 12 December 2021

On behalf of Decmil & Mainroads WA, the City of Albany wishes to advise that there will be temporary closures of Menang Drive and Albany Highway – 29 November to 12 December 2021.

Construction of the new interchange at Albany Highway and Menang Drive is making good progress following the installation of bridge beams in late October. The next critical stage of construction includes tying-in the ramps and adjusting the profile of Albany Highway under and adjacent to the new bridge. To deliver this work safely and efficiently, and reduce long-term disruption to road users, some temporary road closures to Menang Drive and Albany Highway are required.

 

Menang Drive closure – 29 November to 6 December 2021

Menang Drive will be temporarily closed between Copal Road and Albany Highway, Willyung and a signed detour will be in place. Closing the road for a five-day period will reduce the overall length of disruption to traffic by two weeks and remove the need for multiple ‘lane switches’ on gravel surfaces.

Albany Highway closure – 7 December 2021 to 12 December 2021

Albany Highway will be temporarily closed between Lancaster Road, McKail and Menang Drive, Willyung, and a signed detour will be in place.   

Albany Highway reconstruction work will be completed during this temporary closure and includes pavement profiling, widening and surfacing.
