Work on two new overtaking lanes just south of the Lancelin turnoff is expected to be completed by Christmas 2018.

An extra southbound lane is being added to a 1.6km section of Indian Ocean Drive just south of the Ledge Point turnoff (below).The new northbound overtaking lane will be added to the section of road below which is just south of the 90km/hr zone that leads into Lancelin near KW Road.  The upgrades were rushed through following several major accidents on Indian Ocean Drive in 2017 (see banner picture) that resulted in several deaths.
