Karratha-Tom Price Road

Sealing a section of Roebourne-Whittenoom Road, known locally as Karratha Tom Price Road, will reduce travel times, improve safety and reduce road closures, particularly during wet season. The project is being delivered in consecutive stages between Karratha and Tom Price.

Stage 1 and 2 are complete.

Stage 3 will include the construction and sealing of the 48 km section following the Rio Tinto rail alignment, to the rail crossing.Construction of Stage 3 is scheduled to start in June

Stage 4, which is currently unfunded, will include a 107 km section from the Rio Tinto rail crossing to Nanutarra-Munjina Road on new alignment following the Rio Tinto rail line through some very rugged terrain.
