Road Conditions Update-NT-Barkly Highway as at 02/04/24

The following has been received from NTRTA

Contractors are hoping to have the severely damaged sections of the Barkly Highway near Frewena repaired and able to be open to one-way Heavy Vehicles (triple combinations) from Thursday 4th April BUT cannot guarantee that timeframe today.

If not Thursday, the Barkly Highway will be open for heavy vehicles from Friday 5th April.

The same time limits for east bound and west bound traffic will apply. Please check the NT Road Report.

There is still 150mm of water over the waterlogged sections and 450mm on some verges.

It could be 6-8 weeks before the road is fully re-opened to two-way traffic.

NT Govt have been informed that there are many urgent freight and livestock movements that need to get through. We will provide another update as soon as we are advised of more more specific dates/times.
