Western Explorer Road now open

27/10/2008

The Western Explorer Road on the West Coast reopened to traffic on Friday, 24 October 2008.

The Minister for Infrastructure, Graeme Sturges said the road had been closed since a bushfire swept the area in March, leaving in its wake many burnt-out and dangerous trees posing a serious traffic hazard.
"The clean-up within the fire zone has now been completed," Mr Sturges said.

Mr Sturges said that while the clean-up had taken longer than expected, the safety of the travelling public had been the paramount consideration in determining the reopening date.
