Road-seal work welcome
Written on the 5 June 2017
It has been decades in waiting but the $65 million project to completely seal the Broome to Cape Leveque Road is now apparently just weeks away from starting.
Main Roads was due to begin work in July this year to construct and bituminise the remaining 90km middle section of the 200km-long road on behalf of the Shire of Broome.
The council last week entered into an agreement with the State Government roads agency, allowing it access to upgrade the stretch of dirt that often floods in the wet season and isolates indigenous communities on Dampier Peninsula.
Main Roads will base its project headquarters in the Shire-owned Kimberley Regional Offices complex on Frederick Street in Broome.
A lease agreement for 2.5 years from June 15 was agreed between the parties with a 14-month extension option.
