General Information:

State Route 115 is a rural connector route which connects the wheatbelt town of Northam with the northern wheatbelt town of Pithara, which lies on the Great Northern Highway (NH95).

The route consists of single carriageway rural highway which passes through several small towns and farms, plus several saltpans at the northern extremities of the route. During harvest times, the route is frequented by trucks carrying loads of wheat to be processed or shifted by rail to other destinations.

The naming of the route reverts to local naming in Northam, but is referred to in its entirety by Main Roads Western Australia as Northam-Pithara Road.

Multiplexes along the route include:
