Route Numbering:

General Information:

Alternate State Route 10 was the old SR10 alignment through the town of Busselton. The town was bypassed in 2001, by the Busselton Bypass to the south of the town centre. Signs were either coverplated with a blank cover or with ALT-SR10 sheilds thoughout the old alignment. However the result is flaky with some signs showing the route number and others that don't. There was even an incorrect NR10 shield at West Busselton to make things more confusing.

The route is more or less all single carriageway at both ends along Bussell Hwy at Abbey and Causeway Road at Busselton. In between the road varies from 2 to 4 lanes and passes directly through the central business district via Causeway Road and Queen Street, where it turns at the traffic lights on the corner Albert and Queen Streets.

Bussell Highway was named after the Bussell family, some of the region's first settlers.
