Arc Infrastructure will be undertaking asphalt road surface repairs in the rail corridor, which requires the temporary closure of the level crossing on Coolgardie Esperance Highway, near Higginsville.

The geographic coordinates of the crossing are: 31°45'02.5"S, 121°42'42.4"E.

The temporary closure will be in place from 6am, Tuesday the 21st of May, to approximately 4pm, Wednesday the 22nd of May.

The map below shows the level crossing that will be closed, and the available detour.

The detour for motorists is via a dirt road with a temporary crossing installed by Arc, which is also suitable for all heavy vehicles. When approaching from Esperance the turn off is on the right, or the left when approaching from Kalgoorlie.

Electronic message warning signs will soon be placed in the area to advise of the closure. We anticipate only minor delays from the short detour.

For any queries regarding the closure please contact the regional office on 08 9022 0632.

We thank you in advance for your understanding, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
