Main Roads Western Australia
Main Roads is responsible for Western Australia's highways, freeways and main roads which represent almost 30% of the State's total assets.  This responsibility includes the expansion of the existing State road network, in planning, some land in WA has been identified and reserved for possible future expansion of existing roads.

Main Roads' purpose is to provide safe and efficient road access that will enhance community lifestyles and ensure economic prosperity.

Many land developments and projects will involve access onto the Main Roads regional road network and can affect safety or efficiency of the road network. To obtain the necessary access approvals, we need to be contacted about future developments.

To identify the authority responsible for the road access or to find out if a road or a section of road is a state road managed by Main Roads:

Roads that are not in the state road network are generally local roads managed by local government, or minor roads managed by other State Government agencies - such as park roads managed by the Department of Environment Regulation.

Note: Some roads in the state road network have statutory declared Control of Access, which revokes the general right of adjoining land to have direct vehicle and direct pedestrian access to these roads.

Future State Roads are based on the social, environmental and economic requirements of Western Australia.
