Styles calls for care on Arnhem Hwy
Styles says works will take two weeks

 

Repair works on the Arnhem Highway in the Northern Territory start today following a heavy wet season.

Various sections along the five kilometre stretch at the Adelaide River floodplains will be fixed over the next two weeks.

The transport industry is encouraged to travel at night to avoid delays, Infrastructure Minister Peter Styles says.

"The works will take two weeks to complete and will involve lane closures and temporary speed restrictions," Styles says.

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

"With the increase of heavy vehicles utilising the road including tourists and cattle trucks as well as mining and oil and gas vehicles we need to ensure this highway is maintained."
