Project Description

Flooding of the road occurs during the wet season causing boggy conditions, scouring of the pavement and generally making the road hazardous to travel. Continual grading has caused the road to become lower than the natural surface. The road is unsealed and has poor drainage. The Santa Teresa Road is a vital link for the cattle and mining industry, indigenous communities and tourism. The project to Lift, gravel resheet and improve drainage will improve wet access and safety.

Lift, gravel resheet and improve drainage various sections of chainage 90 to 130 kilometres.
