We are upgrading sections of the Duncan Road and Gordon Downs Road, in the Shire of Halls Creek to improve safety and reduce wet season road closures.

What's happening

Construction of the section of Duncan Road and Gordon Downs Road from Palmer Springs to the entrance of Yaruman (Ringer Soak) community is complete.

In 2023, the project was temporarily suspended as resources were allocated to the flood recovery work at Fitzroy Crossing and Willare.

Construction is anticipated to recommence in 2025 targeting the hills sections from Halls Creek town through to Palmer Springs.

Main Roads will continue to engage with the Shire of Halls Creek to determine future works.
