Northern Territory Electoral Commission ntec.nt.gov.au West Arnhem Regional Council (WARC) has completed upgrades along Manyingkarirra Road in Maningrida which is the final step of the Roads to Recovery Stage One project to provide safer roads for the community. This project involved the construction of a 190-metre concrete invert which will form part of the concrete driveways for the properties detailed in Stage Two of the Roads to Recovery program. The works took place in June and July by DCT Australia. Meanwhile, Stage Two of the works has been approved by Council and surveys of the area have been completed. This important stage will include the construction of concrete driveways to Bagshaw Street and Manyingkarirra Road, the addition of kerb and channel to both roads, concrete floodways, road widening and bitumen spray seal. These funded works will mitigate water from ponding along the road reserve along Manyingkarirra Road and will redirect the flow of water to the newly built concrete drain along Bagshaw Street. Works are expected to commence this year and be complete by June 2021, following the finalisation of construction design drawings. While also upgrading infrastructure and increase life span of assets, the project also provides training and upskilling opportunities of WARCs local indigenous workforce.
