The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Road is a significant commercial road in the Winton Shire, with the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum located at the end of the 11.5km road. This major tourist destination receives a significant amount of tourism traffic each year. Due to the unsealed nature, this renders the road unpassable in wet conditions and for days, sometimes weeks after wet conditions have subsided. Bringing up to a sealed standard is expected to mitigate that issue.
It is proposed to reconstruct the road on the existing alignment, importing gravel and bringing the standard of the road up to a 2 lane bitumen surfaced pavement.
Total cost of proposed project is $1,094,606
