Project description

This project will widen and seal approximately 16 kilometres of Peak Hill Road within the Cabonne Shire. The current road is unsealed, with poor pavement conditions and narrow width, leading to inefficiencies in freight movements. These upgrades will make the road a B-Double route, enhancing east-west connections in the region and to the Newell Highway. They will improve freight supply-chain efficiency for local communities, ensuring that goods get to ports and markets more quickly.

This project is complemented by the Peak Hill Road Upgrade Part 2 project, which will continue to upgrade this road within the Parkes Shire Council.


  • Improved road safety for all road users
  • Improved efficiency and network reliability
  • Improved accessibility and connectivity of road networks
  • Improved freight productivity (and access to freight gateways)


The Australian Government has committed $8.64 million towards this project.


Project Delivery dates will be published following the commercial tender process
