Project info

Construction works started in March 2019 to upgrade 9 intersections along the Barkly Highway, between Abel Smith Parade and Camooweal Street intersections to address safety and traffic performance issues.

This urban section of the Barkly Highway in Mount Isa has a poor crash history with a high proportion of incidents occurring at intersections. The project will improve the safety for all road users and flow of traffic at the intersections.

The works are expected to be complete in August 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting. 

This project is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments under the Northern Australia Roads Program (NARP).
