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 sealed, road users will have all weather access and benefit from the safety improvements. 

The project reached a milestone early November 2020, with the entire 90 kilometre section sealed in time for the wet season. Road crews will now take a well-earned break, returning to work in early 2021 to reconstruct the old narrow seal in the first 13.6 kilometres of the road and make upgrades to the intersection at Broome Highway.

Funding has also recently been allocated to sealing the Kooljaman Resort Access Road at Cape Leveque and Trochus Hatchery Access Road at Ardyaloon, with the project commencing in the middle of next year.

Benefits

  • 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
