Carpentaria Highway Upgrades

04 Oct 2023 4:20 PM | Anonymous

Exact Contracting will soon commence the next stage of upgrades to the Carpentaria Highway which will take place between chainage 50 km and chainage 109 km.

The upgrades will involve sealing, reconstructing, widening and lifting as well as flood immunity improvements. The road will be sealed to a two lane standard, offering substantial safety benefits for road users.

The next stage of construction will commence in early October 2023 and be completed in late 2024.

Construction will take place 7 days a week between the hours of 6am to 6pm. Some night works may be required.

Detours and traffic management will be in place at times throughout the project.

About the project

The Carpentaria Highway is a key access road to the town of Borroloola and surrounding regions, and an important service route for the pastoral, tourism, agricultural and mining sectors, including the Beetaloo Sub-basin.

$150 million has been allocated by the Australian and Northern Territory governments to deliver upgrades on the Carpentaria Highway over 4 years.

The upgrades to Carpentaria Highway will complement multiple strategic projects currently underway that aim to bring the Territory’s vision to become a world-class gas production, manufacturing and services hub to reality.

The benefits of the project include:

  • improved efficiency and network reliability
  • improved freight productivity and access to freight gateways
  • improved road safety for all road users, in line with Towards Zero Road Safety Action Plan
  • improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets
  • improved flood immunity, thereby reducing annual road closures
  • improved access to health and social services for remote and Aboriginal communities
  • increased Aboriginal employment and business supplier use.
