The current road is currently of an extreme poor standard with a rough driving surface including significant pavement shape failures. The existing 6m road width is too narrow and unsafe for the type and number of vehicles using the road, including road trains, B-Double and heavy army vehicles. The project seeks to provide a safe and effective transport route to cater for increasing traffic by various vehicle types, and to provide a higher standard of safety and access from the National Highway 1.
The work proposed includes 1.4 kms of Caroona Road to be widened by a seal width of 1m either side of the existing seal and the whole width (8m) covered in 50mm of asphalt to also help with shape correction of the existing seal. The design pavement thickness of the new widened roadway will be 200mm and the shoulder will be designed with a 100mm pavement thickness. Principle works include road widening, adding road shoulders and providing an upgraded roadway surface.
Total cost of proposed project is $1,869,000
