Project Description

The corridor follows the Sturt Highway and runs from Renmark to Gawler in South Australia. The key arterial roads that feed this corridor include the Goyder Highway in South Australia. The corridor contributes to the competitiveness of Australia’s agricultural and mining sectors, opening up access to essential freight networks in South Australia. Corridor works are expected to include widening, strengthening and realignment of various sections.

Benefits

Addressing identified pinch points in the corridor will improve throughput, while targeted upgrades will increase access for higher efficiency heavy vehicles, leading to an overall increase in the efficiency of the corridor in line with the ROSI objectives. Industries that will benefit from investment in this corridor include the forestry, grain, fuel and agriculture industries.

Funding

The Australian Government is providing up to $70 million towards this project.

Timetable

Construction is expected to commence in late 2020 and be completed by mid 2023.
