Harts Range to Stuart Highway to be “all bitumen”
In reply to Surprised. There are plenty of rugged roads around Alice Springs without having the Plenty Highway one of them.
A lot of business people (including stations) would use this road to get their goods from Queensland and also sending cattle to Queensland. As the road becomes rugged each year they have to go to Tennant and onto Mt Isa-Winton etc. Winton is 450 kilometres closer if you go through Boulia, so imagine how much money is saved each trip.
