Monto Mount Perry Road progressive sealing

A combined funding amount of $16 million has been allocated under the Australian Government's Road Safety Program and the State Road Network Upgrades investment program to progressively seal sections of Monto – Mount Perry Road.

The department is sealing around 9.3km of unsealed road, which has been packaged into 3 sections for delivery (Sections A, B and C).

The Queensland Government has allocated $8 million under the State Road Network Upgrades investment program to upgrade parts of the unsealed sections of Monto – Mount Perry Road.

An additional $8 million in joint funding ($6.4 million Australian Government and $1.6 million Queensland Government has been allocated under the Australian Government's Road Safety Program to seal around 4.3km of the unsealed sections. 

Construction of the Road Safety Program portion of work commenced in early August 2021, with the department prioritising the sections between Kerwee Road and Eastern Creek (Sections B and C). The work will seal as much of these sections as funding permits. The department will continue to seek funding opportunities to complete remaining unsealed sections.
