Works are well underway on two significant infrastructure projects in Broome, one establishing a Royal Flying Doctor Service base at the Broome International Airport and the other improving road safety at a Black Spot intersection on Cable Beach Road.
Another major intersection will be included in the Torrens Road to River Torrens upgrade of the North-South Corridor extending the non-stop motorway by approximately one kilometre.
The lowered South Road motorway will now be extended north of the Torrens Road intersection meaning traffic will now avoid six sets of traffic lights and a level crossing.
