Goldfields Highway is a generally northwest-southeast highway in central Western Australia which links the Great Northern Highway at Meekatharra with Coolgardie-Esperance Highway south of Kalgoorlie.[1] The highway is approximately 797 kilometres (495 mi) in length, and is designated as Alternate National Route 94 from Kalgoorlie to Coolgardie–Esperance Highway.

A large 180-kilometre (110 mi) section of the highway, from Meekatharra to Wiluna, is not a sealed road As of 2016. A project to upgrade Goldfields Highway by sealing this portion, over a three-year period, is scheduled to start in the 2017/18 financial year. The project has $60 million of funding through Royalties for Regions.[2][3]
