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

Commonwealth and State environment approvals have been received. The Yindjibarndi and Wintawari Guruma people hold non-exclusive native title rights over the majority of the land required for Stage 4. Main Roads has agreed to enter into Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUA) to allow the construction of Stage 4.

Construction is scheduled to commence in mid-2024 and will be undertaken over several years to enable facilitated engagement with the Native Title holders.

The northern 10 km section of Stage 4 is not subject to native title. Contract negotiations have commenced to deliver the work
