Mount Isa Urban Intersection Upgrades

We have upgraded 9 intersections on the Barkly Highway in Mount Isa.

The urban section of the Barkly Highway in Mount Isa has a poor crash history with a high number of incidents occurring at intersections.

The intersection upgrades will improve the flow of traffic around this area, making the road safer for all users.
