About this Consultation

Please take a few minutes to read this fact sheet which outlines the background and current situation for this consultation.

The State Government requested investigation into the potential route of secondary access to several coastal communities following the outcomes of the 2011 Keelty Report into the Margaret River Bushfires. Second access options are designed to provide alternative access and egress in the event of future emergencies, including bushfire.

A Steering Group consisting of the Shire of Augusta Margaret River, Main Roads WA, Department of Parks and Wildlife, and Department of Fire and Emergency Services has been appointed to consider the issues associated with providing a secondary access road to Gracetown. A Community Reference Group has also been established.

Consultation is open from Friday 3 February to Friday 24 February 2017.
