Project Description

Mount Denison Road is used by aboriginal communities, pastoral proprietors, mining exploration and expanding 4WD tourism. A significant volume of traffic is triple road trains for cattle haulage, and mining exploration. The road section traverses winding hilly country with poor line of sight, numerous creek crossings, exposed reef rock and worn formation. Drainage is poor with the pavement having loss of formation, scours and washouts and loose surface. In wet weather ponding water closes the road for extended periods. The road has been the subject of numerous near misses, accidents and complaints due to poor access.

Reform and gravel resheeting various sections between chainage 30 and 55 kilometres.
