Project Description

The current road's pavement is highly deteriorated and the seal is failing. The road suffers from rutting and pavement edge breaks due to the lack of road drainage and heavy use. The current tree lined road which consists of many curves, hairpin bends and steep drop offs is too narrow making it unsafe for the increasing traffic volumes particularly when the road is a critical freight route vital to the area.

Upgrade of the 640 metre section of Sturt Valley Road consists of a full depth pavement reconstruction and asphalting the surface with a 40mm asphalt seal, installation of kerbs, gutters, and guardrails to protect steep drop offs. The lane widths will also be increased with edge lining, and improved drainage.

Total cost of proposed project is $457,000
