Project Description

The current road base thickness, originally laid in the 1940s is grossly sub standard and almost non existant in places. The road is dangerous with rocky undulations, widespread pavement failures, narrow seal width with minimal shoulders and significant tree and cuttings hazards.

The work proposed includes rehabilitation, widening and strengthening road pavement, removal of roadside hazards and drainage improvement to 2.9 kilometres of the Flinders Highway. Upgrade of the road to a minimum 7.2 metre seal, and where possible 8 metres, comprised 2 x 3.5 traffic lanes and a 0.5 metre sealed shoulder. Existing pavement will be upgraded with new material and stabilised to provide a suitable sub-base.

Total cost of proposed project is $1,490,000
