​​​​​Broome Cape Leveque Road

Broome Highway to Beagle Bay

We are upgrading and sealing a section of Broome Cape Leveque Road. This will provide all weather access to the Dampier Peninsula and surrounding communities while also improving safety. Construction has started and will finish in 2021.
​​​​​Broome Cape <em>Leveque Road</em>

Overview

During the wet season, access to the Dampier Peninsula is restricted due to flooding. This project will provide all weather access and safety improvements.  

Once completed, a sealed Broome-Cape Leveque Road will improve access through the Dampier Peninsula to Aboriginal communities, pastoral stations, pearling industries and tourist destinations.
 

Works will include:  

  • Construction and sealing of the remaining 90 km unsealed section 
  • Reconstruction and sealing of the existing 13.6 km of narrow seal 
  • Upgrade of the Broome Cape Leveque Road and Broome Highway intersection 
  • Alignment/geometric and drainage improvements 
  • The installation of culverts, fauna underpasses and floodways 

To help reduce crashes and improve safety, we will also: 

  • Add gravel shoulders 
  • Widen the roads to 8 m  
  • Build audio tactile edge lines to reduce the risk of vehicles leaving the road 
  • Flatten roadside batters (the slopes of dirt on the side) to reduce the risk of rollovers 
  • Install parking bays at regular intervals to provide more rest stop opportunities

During construction, vehicles will still be able to use the existing road. You may see reduced speed limits while work is underway.
