GREAT Northern Highway at the intersection of Reid and Roe highways will close for a weekend in January for asphalt repair road works.

From 7pm Friday, 20 January to 5am Monday 23 January, access from Reid and Roe highways to Great Northern Highway northbound will be restricted, and only westbound traffic on Roe Highway will have access to Great Northern Highway southbound.

Traffic on Reid and Roe highways will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the intersection and 40 km/h speed restrictions will be in place.

Access to Great Northern Highway northbound, including all local restaurants, cafes, wineries and other attractions, will be maintained throughout the weekend via signed detour routes.

Westbound traffic on Roe Highway will be detoured via Toodyay, Campersic and Oakover Roads, and eastbound traffic on Reid Highway will be detoured via West Swan Road.

Road users are advised to plan, seek alternative routes where possible and allow extra travel time as delays are expected.
