Peak Downs Highway (Walkerston Bypass)

The scope of works involves the realignment of the Peak Downs Highway to bypass Walkerston, which will increase safety on the existing route through the main street of Walkerston, by minimising heavy vehicle traffic and removing the interaction between heavy vehicle traffic and local traffic. The new route will also offer a safer and more efficient link for the mining industry in the northern Bowen Basin to Mackay and, in particular, the industrial area of Paget.
