The road section traverses flat sand clay country with poor line of sight and poor drainage, numerous creek crossings, exposed reef rock and worn formation. Drainage is poor with the pavement having loss of formation, scours and washouts, loose surface, and bull dust sections developing. 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. The road has high usage from aboriginal communities, pastoralists, mining exploration and expanding 4WD tourism. A significant volume of traffic are road trains for cattle haulage and mining exploration.
Reform, gravel resheet and drainage repairs.
