Project Description

The current road surface consists of signficant amounts of loose material, resulting in significant dust pollution and reduced visibility. The poor quality of the current pavement also requires significant maintenance. The road forms part of a regionally significant freight route in the Murray and Mallee 2030 Regional Transport Plan, but is not currently gazetted for use by B-double trucks.

The proposed work involves maintaining the existing unsealed surface, but strengthening the pavement to B-double standard. The road width will be increased to a minimum of 8 metres and the intersection of Bower Boundary Road and the Sturt Highway will be widened.

Total cost of proposed project is $240,000
