Project Description

The Calvert road is extensively used by the heavy vehicles in the support of pastoral proprieties, mining and aboriginal communities and is used as an alternative route to QLD. With the increase in trucks and the tourists, the gate is either left open or damaged by vehicles not stopping and causing damage to the vehicles and gates. The pastoral station are constantly repairing the gate and re-mustering cattle in the wrong paddocks. The removal of the gate and construction of grid will improve accessibility and reduce the risk of accidents.

Remove the existing gate and construction of grid.
