The Department of Parks and Wildlife wish to inform the Grey and Wedge shack associations and all shack occupiers of planned aerial photography at Wedge and Grey, to be carried out this Thurs/Fri on 28-29 July 2016.  The purpose of the photography is to inform DPaWs planning process and to give a snapshot of the shack settlements at this point in time.

There should be little disturbance – a bit of noise occasionally as the UAV (small drone) flies over. For further information contact the Department on 9309 5995.

INDIAN OCEAN DRIVE (Lancelin to Cervantes)

OPEN to traffic from 5pm


Print and Download Announcement

After many years of planning and more than two years of construction, the Lancelin-Cervantes Stage 2 Project Team is proud to announce that the much anticipated Lancelin to Cervantes section of Indian Ocean Drive will be officially opened on Sunday 19th September; and will be open to traffic from 5pm on that day.

With the assistance of favourable winter weather, construction has been able to continue at an accelerated pace and as a result, the road will be completed approximately 9 months ahead of schedule.

The final product is a testament to all who have been involved and there is no doubt that the road will be very much appreciated by local communities and tourists.

It is important to note however, that the road will remain closed to general traffic whilst minor works continue to operate up to the official opening date.

Main Roads WA would like to thank the general public for their support and patience during the road construction and requests your continued co-operation in using current/existing routes until after 5pm Sunday 19th September 2010.

Please note that work on upgrading the old Pinnacles Drive (south of Cervantes) will continue until the end of October 2010.  Motorists in the area should exercise care whilst works are in progress.

Happy travelling!

Political Commitment Sought

“The (ALP/LibP) is committed to continuing the role of the Wedge & Grey Task Force created to ‘… examine policies, legislation and associated resolution practices regarding shack communities in other states and jurisdictions, in order to determine the best way forward…’ in implementing management plans for the two reserves.

Further, the purpose of the Wedge & Grey Task Force is to investigate and make recommendations on how the shack communities could be integrated into such plans for the provision of upgraded recreation and tourist facilities, prior to any future EOI process being implemented.”
