This project will deliver safety improvements at three key rail crossings in the Pilbara which are used by a combined total of 6000 vehicles each day.
A joint initiative between BHP and the Western Australian and Australian Governments, the project will include the construction of two new ‘road-over-rail’ bridges, realignment of two major intersections and two new roundabouts.
Stage 1, including the construction of a bridge over BHP's rail line at Buttweld Road and two roundabouts on Powell Road at the intersections of Dalton and Hamilton roads, is complete.
Stage 2 will involve the realignment of about 4.75km of the Great Northern Highway and a second bridge over the BHP rail line.
