The Barkly Stock Route is a rural main road connecting the Stuart and Tablelands highways, servicing a number of cattle producers in the area. The route is currently partially sealed.
The project involves reconstruction, widening and upgrading works on a section of the Barkly Stock Route to improve efficiency for heavy vehicles transporting livestock and other heavy vehicles and road users.
The project will support the transportation of livestock in the region by improving road safety and regional productivity, reducing travel times and increasing road reliability during the wet season.
The Australian Government has committed up to $10 million towards this $12.5 million project.
Construction is expected to commence in early-2018, noting that the project is still in the early stages of development and the above project timelines are subject to change.
