About the Project

Great Northern Highway is the main land transport link between Perth and the Kimberley Region and is the only sealed road connecting Perth with the Northern Territory.

As part of the Auslink National Network, the highway upgrades included in this project were fully funded by the Australian Government.

Five sections of the highway have been upgraded:

    • 5 km of the Elvire to Sandy Creek Section (20 km north of Halls Creek);
    • Fletchers Creek Bridge (120km north of Halls Creek);
    • Big Mabel Creek Bridge (20km south of Warmun);
    • Telegraph Creek Bridge (20km north of Warmun);
    • Bow River Section (20km north of Warmun).

The works have improved pavement strength, road alignment, road safety and overall flood serviceability of these sections of the highway.
