Banjima Drive has been sealed up to the 10 Straight Line Kilometre point; this was a R2R Project last year, the next step is the next 10 Straight Line Kilometres to seal, the remaining length of Banjima Drive is an unsealed graded earth road. This is a major tourist route to the Karijini National Park Gorges and Karijini Eco Retreat and has a very high traffic count, including buses, caravans and service trucks, especially at peak tourist periods. Commuters often complain about the condition of the unsealed road; sealing, with the vision of full completion of the road, would encourage more tourists to visit the area and provide a safer route plus diminish the extent of dust intrusion into the environment surrounding areas.
Construct, stabilise and prepare for seal, seal. Complete required drainage, signage and guideposts.
Total cost of proposed project is $3,302,046
