Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Fund – Pippingarra Road Intersection Upgrade
CLIENT: Town of Port Hedland
PROJECT VALUE: 4.5 MILLION
The Town of Port Hedland and the mining sector identified an opportunity to significantly increase safety and productivity of the developing lithium industry in the Pilbara, by upgrading the intersection of Pippingarra Road with Great Northern Highway.
The upgrade would enable a safer, faster route to the port for newly established Lithium Miners in the East Pilbara.
The project successfully obtained $2.3 million through the Federal Government Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Fund.
Following a successful funding application, RFF has continued to support the implementation of the project, including design and approvals coordination.
