The Territory Government is investing in job creating infrastructure with upgrades to the Stuart Highway and Tulagi Road Intersection recently awarded.
Local company, Ostojic Group won the $5.5 million tender which is expected to support more than 50 local jobs.
Work will include upgrading the Stuart Highway and Tulagi Road Intersection, new left and right turning lanes on the Stuart Highway, and upgrading and widening the Pierssene Road and Tulagi Road intersection. In addition to these works, the Tulagi Road corridor and stormwater drainage will be upgraded to improve local flood immunity as part of the Flood Mitigation works.
The Territory Government is encouraging private investment with the project part of a funding agreement between the Northern Territory Government, City of Palmerston and Bunnings.
These upgrades will cater for increased traffic, improve safety and facilitate future planning in the area for existing and new businesses, with work on the project expected to commence early November 2018 and be completed by mid-2019.
