We’re on the road in the Goldfields-Esperance Region - undertaking more than $200 million of work to make your journey safer, smoother and more efficient.
Often referred to as ‘Australia’s Longest Shortcut’, Great Central Road is an iconic route between Laverton in WA and Winton in QLD.
With over 1,400 kilometres of the road unsealed, work is underway to upgrade a 40 kilometre section east of Laverton - and we’re half way there with 20 kilometres sealed.
Earthworks have started to prepare for sealing of the next section, due for completion in October.
