Great Northern Highway - Maggie Creek to Wyndham
Jointly funded by the Australian and State Governments, the project will see Great Northern Highway upgraded between Maggie Creek and Wyndham. The project will provide increased employment opportunities and a more reliable road network for the East Kimberley region.
Rock blasting and bulk earthworks are underway to construct the realigned section through Maggie’s Jump Up. Drainage works, including culvert replacements and extensions are also in progress.
Piling at the bridge on Weaber Plain Road is complete, with structural works to commence soon.
