This project will deliver progressive sealing on various sections of the Winton - Jundah Road with associated works such as grid improvements and heavy vehicle productivity treatments.
The Winton - Jundah Road is a locally significant commercial route, supporting access to tourist attractions and linking primary industries to market. Following wet weather, the road experiences extensive closures.
Led by Winton Shire Council, this project will upgrade priority sections of the road to a sealed standard to improve flood immunity, safety, and access for larger combinations of heavy vehicles.
This project is funded under the Mount Isa to Rockhampton corridor under the Roads of Strategic Importance initiative. It supports corridor-level benefits by improving the productivity and safety of freight movements, supporting regional and economic growth by better linking industries to market and tourists to attractions, and improves safety for all road users.
Improved road safety for all road users, improved efficiency and network reliability, improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets and improved freight productivity.
Total funding of $16.2 million (Australian Government contribution $12.96 million, Winton Shire Council contribution $3.24 million).
This project is expected to commence construction in mid 2023 and be completed by early 2025.
