Forrest Beach – Temporary road closure

The Shire of Capel advises road users that a delay in the commencement of Water Corporation bridge replacement works means that the proposed closure of Forrest Beach Road, Forrest Beach has been rescheduled.

The bridge on Forrest Beach Road needs to be replaced. Accordingly, the road will be closed from the intersection with Ludlow North Road to approximately 100 m west of the bridge for a period of approximately 6 months while construction is underway.

Water Corporation intends to commence work in May 2017 with an estimated completion date of October 2017. Access to properties and Forrest Beach will need to be via Layman Road, Busselton during the road closure.
