    End date

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.

Works to construct and seal the last remaining section of red dirt road between Broome and One Arm Point commenced in 2018 with 32 kilometres of new road now open to traffic, and the remaining 58 kilometres expected to open by the end of 2020.

Once completed this project will see the road fully-sealed, offering communities on the Dampier Peninsula year-round access to essential services and a safer, more efficient journey.

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
