Access to Weeli Wolli Creek and surrounds Track Re-Opened

Rio Tinto is committed to ensuring that members of the Traditional Owner groups have safe access across Rio Tinto managed land.

The access track from Roy Hill road southwards to Weeli Wolli Spring and Hope Downs 1 has been closed since March this year due to the development of Yandicoogina’s Bina Bina South project.


From Saturday 08:00 on the 30th September 2017, the track will be re-opened and includes a new 4×4 bypass road to allow through traffic from the BHP Port Hedland to Newman railway, travelling South through Marillana Pastoral Station to Hope Downs 1.


Please note that this is a 4×4 track and users should drive to conditions at the time of use and follow the advisory signage on route.
