In news this week, WBHO Infrastructure have been granted the contract to upgrade 27km of Great Northern Highway, from Maggie’s Jump Up to Wyndham.
The Federal Government has contributed $44.9 million towards the Wyndham Project and the WA Government has added $11.2 million.
Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Barnaby Joyce said this section of the Great Northern Highway was a key route for the region and the transport industry in the Kimberley. “It provides the only sealed access to Wyndham and its port,” he said.
The project, worth $56.1 million, construction is expected to begin in April, and be completed by the end of 2018.
