The project will deliver targeted upgrades to the Peninsula Developmental Road and surrounding roads.
The Cooktown to Weipa corridor is a key intra-regional link that connects a number of remote communities to essential services and employment opportunities. The corridor also supports both the cattle and mining industries. These upgrades would help improve access to and from remote communities, in addition to better supporting the mining, tourism and agricultural interests located along the corridor.
The Australian Government will contribute up to 80 per cent, capped at $190 million.
The delivery schedule will be determined as planning on the project progresses and in consultation with the Queensland Government.
