Project Description

This project will address the fit for purpose standard of the road. The road has seen a significant increase in heavy vehichle traffic following the construction of a new grain terminal in the area, is a school bus route and has experienced increase tourist traffic since the commencement of the Cowell to Wallaroo ferry. Increased use of the road has caused hazardous driving conditions due to dust, which has also effected native vegetation in close proximity to the road.

Work proposed includes construction and sealing of 4.5 kilometres of the Balumbah to Kinniard Road from the end of the section completed in 2012-13 (third 4.5 kilometres). This includes construction formation, vertical and horizontal alignments, drainage lines and final seal of the road to a width of 8 metres with 1.5 metre shoulders. This work represents the final year of the 4 year project.

Total cost of proposed project is $3,040,000
