Project Description

The current road is unsealed and dust and loose material are problematic making the road unsafe. There is a history of accidents on the road and upgrading to a sealed surface will help reduce the risk of further accidents occuring. The road is a social, tourist and freight route for the region. Stage 2 of this project is part of a bigger project to seal the route to Mount Wedge Road with neighbouring council District Council of Elliston.

The 12 kilometres of road will seal the route between the towships of Elliston and Kyancutta, linking the Birdseye Highway at Mount Wedge with the Eyre Highway at Kyancutta.

Total cost of proposed project is $1,440,000
