Karratha-Tom Price Road
- The project is being delivered in consecutive stages between Karratha and Tom Price.
- Construction of Stage 3 is scheduled to start in September.
- Sealing a section of Roebourne-Whittenoom Road, known locally as Karratha Tom Price Road, will reduce travel times, improve safety and reduce road closures, particularly during wet season.
Stage 3 will include the construction and sealing of the 48 km section following the Rio Tinto rail alignment, to the rail crossing.
Stage 4, which is currently unfunded, will include a 107 km section from the Rio Tinto rail crossing to Nanutarra-Munjina Road on new alignment following the Rio Tinto rail line through some very rugged terrain.
Stage 1 and 2 are complete.
Tenders are currently being assessed and construction on Stage 3 is expected to commence in September 2019.
Stage 3 construction start: September 2019
Stage 3 construction complete: Early-2020
