Project Description

The current road is unsealed and very narrow (only 7 metres wide in some sections). The road has an undulating vertical and horizontal alignment, restricting sight and traversing several watercourses, which often cause closure of the road, due to flood damage.

The work proposed includes improving the vertical and horizontal alignment of the road, using the existing road reserves and minor land acquisitions. It is also proposed to instal 31 culverts to accommodate watercourse crossings, widen the road to 11 metres, seal the road and increase the design speed from 80 kilometeres per hour to 100 kilometres per hour. Funding approved in the first year of this project (see Project 042942-11SA-RTR) saw planning, pegging, survey, design works, major materials contracts, rubble blasting and concrete drain works completed. In the second year of this project for the District Council of Orroroo Carrieton, Council will complete road works to seal the road in accordance with the work proposed above.

Total cost of proposed project is $4,070,000
