Project Description

This section of gravel road has a poorly formed surface and poor drainage, with the intersection of Boorga Road not meeting the current requirements for site distance, safety and turning movements. Due to the high frequency of heavy vehicle movements, the existing gravel surface rapidly deteriorates into potholes and becomes corrugated. The road is used by many heavy vehicles, including B-Doubles and Road Trains servicing the agricultural and horticultural industries, acting as a northern bypass for the City of Griffith. The surface is detrimental to the quality of produce transported to major centres, creating dust and a safety issue for the travelling public.

The intersection of Boorga Road requires an upgrade of drainage and realignment. The 1930m section of Jones Road is to be constructed and sealed to a formation width of 9.4m and sealed width of 8.0m.

Total cost of proposed project is $1,259,106
