What's happening

Project development is underway for the final 110 km link (Stage 4), including:

  • Traditional Owner heritage surveys
  • Highway alignment definition
  • Optimisation of sustainable outcomes
  • Construction material usage

An Expression Of Interest (EOI) for the Stage 4 main Alliance Contract is planned to be advertised in late 2023. The main Alliance Contract will seek to maximise First Nation people participation. First Nations are represented by Yindjibarndi and Wintawuri Guruma Groups. Participation will include commercial, cultural and employment opportunities, as well as skills development and increased capacity.

Pavement overlay works are currently being undertaken to upgrade Stage 2.  These works are partly being undertaken by Yindjibarndi businesses.
