Moore River Rest Area closed

Motorists are being advised to use the Nilgen Reserve Rest Area, which is 14km north of the Lancelin Rd turn-off.

THE Moore River Rest Area will be closed from Monday, July 18 to Friday, July 22, according the Shire of Gingin.

The shire’s website said Main Roads WA had advised the rest area would be closed due to the removal and replacement of the on-site toilet facility.

“Motorists are advised not to enter the rest area as there will be machinery and contractors carrying out construction works,’’ the notice said.

“The replacement toilet facility should be installed and completed by  Friday, July 22 unless delayed by weather or unforeseen circumstances.

“Signs will be put in place on Monday, July 18 by Main Roads WA preventing access and advising of the closure.

“As an alternative, Main Roads WA has confirmed that new toilets and a caravan dump point has now opened at the Nilgen Reserve Rest Area, 14km north of the Lancelin Rd turn-off.

“Motorists are advised to use the new facilities until all construction works are completed at Moore River.

“The Nilgen Reserve Rest Area is approximately 30km from the Moore River Rest Area.
