Cramsie - Muttaburra Road, (Section 4) pave and seal

The last remaining gravel section of Cramsie - Muttaburra Road is set to be sealed.

Works will soon start to seal the final 4km section of gravel road, improving safety, efficiency and wet weather access for all road users travelling between Longreach and Muttaburra. 

The road is part of a key link that connects central Queensland with northern and southern parts of Australia. It gives surrounding communities access to goods and services, education, employment and recreation facilities. 

Construction is expected to start in early 2022 and when completed in mid-2022, the road will be fully sealed. 

Fully sealing the Cramsie - Muttaburra Road complements existing sealed access to Muttaburra via Barcaldine and Aramac, creating a sealed loop to support growth in tourism opportunities.
