Minister for Infrastructure
Development on Tiger Brennan Drive continues to advance with the contract awarded for an off ramp extension aimed at improving road safety for Territorians.
Minister for Infrastructure Peter Chandler said the contract was awarded to local Yarrawonga contractor, DAC Enterprises Pty Ltd for $1.8 million.
“This extension will improve traffic flow and operations at the Tiger Brennan Drive/Stuart Highway interchange,” Mr Chandler said.
“Roystonea Avenue off ramp will be extended by approximately 525 metres as well as earthworks, drainage, pavement, asphalting, street lighting, and landscaping works.
“The Tiger Brennan Drive duplication project is part of a number of improvements and enhancements to Palmerston arterial roads to complement over $1 billion of investment and development in and around Palmerston.
“Once completed, the Tiger Brennan Drive off ramp will allow for a greater volume of traffic in the future and will make the drive from Darwin to Palmerston safer.”
A total of 15 workers will be employed which includes four Indigenous employees.
“The off ramp extension is 100 per cent Northern Territory Government funded but, I acknowledge and thank the Commonwealth Government for their commitment and funding for the Tiger Brennan Drive duplication project,” Mr Chandler said.
Works for the off ramp are expected to be complete in December 2015.
