The NT Government has announced it will spend an extra $10 million on the Territory’s beef roads.
The funding will be spent over the next two years to pay for upgrades to roads which have
been prioritised with the assistance of the NTCA.
The biggest beneficiaries are the Plenty Highway ($2m), Point Stuart Road ($1.6m), Buntine
Highway ($1m), Barkly Stock Route ($800,000), Buchanan Highway ($800,000) and
Maryvale Road ($800,000).
The Central Arnhem Road, Ranken Road, Sandover Highway, Finke Road and Roper Highway
will each receive $500,000. A further $300,000 will be spent on the Ringwood Road and
$200,000 on the Larrimah West Creek Link Road.
The NTCA has welcomed the commitment which comes after intensive lobbying by the
association for urgent action on roads that it says have been seriously neglected for decades.
