As the community would be aware, Narrogin encountered flood damage to roads by a storm event in February. This storm event was declared a natural disaster and as such attracts funding to Local Government Authorities to repair damaged roads and assets.

 Council has engaged a consultant to facilitate the complex process of submitting a claim, facilitating an approval of a claim through Main Roads and then commence facilitation of repair works to roads. This process could take up to 3 months before a claim is approved and works commence on road repairs.

 Council advisors all road users to continue to exercise caution on all Shire roads.

 The following roads are currently closed and will remain closed until further notice: Rowe Road, Condon Road and McDougalls Road.


With effect from April 3 2017 the Shire of Narrogin will introduce introduce timed parking on the following roads:
