Upgrading the Arnhem Highway after heavy wet season

Following a heavy wet season in the Northern Territory, repair works on the Arnhem Highway at the Adelaide River floodplains will begin this week.

NT Minister for Infrastructure, Peter Styles, said repairs would begin on various sections along the five-kilometre stretch of highway to improve road safety and conditions of the road.

He said discussions had been undertaken with the haulage industry to encourage night time travel where possible to minimise any impacts.

“During the significant amount of rain we received early this year, the Arnhem Highway suffered considerable damage that needs to be rectified,” Styles said.

He said the works, worth around $700,000, will take two weeks to complete, and will involve lane closures and temporary speed restrictions.

“Full traffic management will be in place, so please follow all directions and safety measures issued.”
