The project widened and strengthened the North West Coastal Highway between Minilya and Barradale, and constructed two bridges over low-level floodway crossings between Barradale and Nanutarra.
The project improved service reliability and is expected to reduce road closures on the highway. It will improve freight access and reduce freight costs to significant new resource operations in the eastern Pilbara and northern Gascoyne regions, and their supporting towns.
The Australian Government contributed $86.06 million towards the $108.35 million project.
Construction on Stage 2 was completed in October 2016, marking completion of the full project.
