The Western Australian government has announced the completion of a 3.5km entrance road into Onslow.
Minister for State Development, Bill Marmion, said the road would guarantee access to the town during harsh weather conditions.
"This is important infrastructure for the growing Onslow community, giving certainty to locals and visitors to the area," Marmion said.
"After extensive planning, new and upgraded facilities are being constructed, including the Onslow Shire Council administration centre and library, wastewater treatment plant improvements and housing for regional government officers."
The works were funded by the Wheatstone Project, which has committed more than $250 million to social and critical infrastructure.
Minister for Transport, Dean Nalder, said the road would facilitate the recently upgraded Onslow Airport.
"Following cyclones, the previous road was prone to flooding from storm surges which hampered emergency services and prevented evacuations from occurring," Nalder said.
"To overcome this seasonal problem, the new road is constructed on an elevated alignment."
Construction on the Onslow Ring Road project began in November 2015.
