We're progressively upgrading Gibb River Road to improve the general condition and serviceability of the road, especially during wet season.
The road will generally be maintained as a high standard unsealed road. Only the sections of the road that are difficult to maintain will be sealed, including the eastern and western ends with the highest traffic volumes.
- Improvements to floodways and gravel sheeting between Gibb River Station and Kalumburu Road
- Improvements to the road geometry and drainage
- Road sealing where required
Ongoing maintenance includes re-sheeting sections of road where the old, unsealed pavement is being worn away by traffic, with gravel.
This work will provide a safer driving environment for all road users, in both wet and dry conditions, while reducing road maintenance needs.
