The upgrade involved channelling works, including table drains and culverts to divert water during flooding, and construction of a raised 450 metre two lane bridge over the Bohle River.
The upgrade improved road conditions for the local community and freight access, and provided better flood immunity.
The Australian Government committed to provide 50 per cent up to $20 million towards the estimated $40 million cost of the upgrade of Dalrymple Road, in partnership with the Queensland Government and Townsville City Council.
As the project was delivered under budget for $31.74 million, the final Australian Government contribution was $15.87 million.
Construction commenced in May 2015 and was practically complete in January 2016.
