The Broome Cape Leveque Road is the main transport link through the Dampier Peninsula and is susceptible to flooding, forcing it to be closed during wet season and isolating communities. Once improvements are completed, road users will have all weather access and benefit from the safety improvements. 

The project reached a milestone early November 2020, with a 90 kilometre section sealed in time for the wet season. A further 13 kilometres was upgraded in 2021. 

Construction of a roundabout at Broome Road and Cape Leveque Road intersection is underway and will improve road safety at this location.

In 2023, Main Roads completed the construction and sealing of the Ardyaloon Hatchery Road (One Arm Point), with final seal to be applied in mid-2024.

Other completions include final surfacing, installation of pavement markings and signage at the roundabout on Broome Road, flood damage repairs, drainage upgrades, and repairs and reseals of Beagle Bay Internal Roads.


  • Improvements to road safety
  • Improved access for Aboriginal communities
  • Reduced delays caused by road closures during the wet season
  • Increased tourism to the area
  • Support economic activity through provision of a more efficient road network
