Cramsie Muttaburra Road (Section 2) pave and seal

Works are underway to seal another 4km of the road.

The Cramsie-Muttaburra Road is part of a key link that connects central Queensland with northern Queensland and the southern states.

This project is part of ongoing efforts to seal gravel sections of the 115km road.

The works are being delivered at the same time as another project, the Cramsie-Muttaburra Road pave and seal project, which started in late 2020 and is sealing more than 9km of the road.

Together, these projects will seal more than 13km of the road, reducing the amount of unsealed sections to just over 4km.
