Project Description

The Maryvale Road has four locations where fencing has required installation of gates across the public road. The gates were installed over 40 years ago across the road, limiting traffic to one lane through each gate. Due to increased traffic numbers in recent years with the development of Titjikala community, mining, cattle and tourism, the gates are left permanently open after numerous incidents of vehicles crashing into the gates. The road has high usage from aboriginal communities, pastoralists, mining exploration and expanding 4WD tourism. A significant volume of traffic is road trains for cattle haulage, community stores and mining exploration. Removing gates and replacing with grids will provide a safer road environment for road users.

Remove four gates, reform the road for 2 way traffic and construct a grid at each gate location.
