Project info

The Flinders Highway is a high-productivity freight route, which forms part of the National Land Transport Network, linking agricultural and mining activities to the processing and export facilities in Townsville.

The scope of works for this project includes replacing 7 culverts, which are past their design life and are showing signs of structural fatigue on the section of the Highway between Charters Towers and Richmond.
