The junction between the Murchison and Bass Highways will be closed for up to two and half months from Monday while it undergoes a major upgrade.

The Department of State Growth says the busy junction will be closed from Monday until December 18th, with work going on between 7 am and 6 pm daily.

The overhaul is part of the Cam River Bridge replacement project and will include widening the intersection and the installation of traffic lights.
