Project description

The project includes various upgrades for Artillery Road and Greenlake Road, near Rockhampton in Queensland. Works include approximately two kilometres of pavement widening and floodway and alignment upgrades.

Led by Livingstone Shire Council, this project will improve safety by improving horizontal geometry and widening curves, eliminating inconsistencies along the route. An improved route will increase the flood immunity and reliability of the route and better connect industries operating in the region, such as agriculture.

This project will provide corridor-level benefits by supporting freight movements and regional growth, improving safety and facilitating economic opportunities, such as tourism.

Benefits

Improved road safety for all road users, improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets, and improved accessibility and connectivity of road networks.

Funding

Total funding of $7.73 million (Australian Government commitment $6.18 million, Livingstone Shire Council Contribution $1.55 million).

Timetable

This project is expected to commence construction in late 2024 and be completed by early 2025.
