Project Description

The Australian Government provided $77 million under the Community, Beef and Mining Roads Improvement Programme in partnership with the Northern Territory Government which contributed $34.5 million to remote communities for better roads. This funding improved outcomes in road standards for a range of road projects in rural areas of the Northern Territory.

The Central Arnhem Road project which forms part of the Community, Beef and Mining Roads Improvement Package provided construction of a section of road realignment, strengthen and widen pavement at approaches to new submersible single lane bridges and associated floodways at the Mainoru River Crossings, Goyder River and Badalngarrmirri (Donydji) River Crossings.

Benefits

The benefits from this project include:

  • a reduction in the frequency and length of the periodic road closures which isolate indigenous communities;
  • improved safety for all users of the road; and
  • a reduction in transport operation costs.
