Construction starts on Strzelecki Track Upgrade

26 March 2015

Works on a $1.2 million Strzelecki Track upgrade have now commenced, delivering vital safety upgrades to the local road network near Lyndhurst in South Australia.

The upgrades included cement stabilisation and the installation of concrete culverts and floodways. 

The Strzelecki Track experiences regular road closures after even moderate rain, causing safety issues, and hindering business operations by cutting access from Lyndhurst to Innamincka and to the Moomba gas fields. 

A few years ago the region was isolated by flood waters and the track turned to mud.

This is the major supply line to the Moomba gas fields, which has provided the bulk of the Adelaide and Sydney market for many years. 

The region is continue to grow as a gas producer and help underwrite SA's future and as such, will need a much larger investment in the medium term to cope with the load.  The upgrade works are expected to finish in June 2015.

The project is part of the $2.1 billion Roads to Recovery programme, which continues to deliver improved safety, economic and social outcomes across Australia.
