The Cloncurry - Dajarra Road is a north-east to south-west road linking the Barkly Highway and the Diamantina Developmental Road, servicing a number of cattle grazing and production areas in northern Queensland.
The project consists of approximately 4.5km of progressive sealing works on unsealed sections of the road to improve productivity and safety in the region.
The project will deliver the following improvements to the cattle supply chain:
- improved productivity and travel times by sealing unsealed sections of road
- improved road safety by providing adequate seal width for overtaking and passing of vehicles and improving visibility by reducing dust and flying rock
- reduced road roughness and damage to cattle
- improved accessibility by sealing unsealed sections of road supporting high-productivity vehicle access
- improved road reliability by reducing instances of vehicles getting bogged in wet unsealed pavements
- reduced whole-of-life asset management costs
The Australian Government has committed up to $2.6 million towards this $3.2 million project.
Construction commenced in July 2018 and will be completed in late 2018, weather permitting.
