General Information:

The Great Northern Highway links the north of WA with Perth and the port of Fremantle and is the main communication route between Perth and Darwin. It also forms part of the infrastructure that links the Murchison, Pilbara and Kimberley Regions to Perth. 1

The Great Northern Highway services the State's agricultural, pastoral, mining and tourism industries, and is the main route for the flow of goods and services to and from the State's north. In addition to it being a dedicated National Highway, it also serves as the classified Heavy Haulage and Wide/High Load Route to the north of the State, on which approximately 30% of the traffic is heavy vehicles, often carrying over-width loads such as mining machinery. 1

Its total length within Wheatbelt North Region is 277km and it passes through the Shires of Chittering, Victoria Plains, Moora and Dalwallinu. 1

The NH95 section is all rural highway standard and is among the remotest sealed roads in the world.

Multiplexes along the route include:
