Asphalt Program set to commence in Port Hedland and South Hedland

Published on Tuesday, 6 July 2021 at 4:38:05 PM

The Town of Port Hedland will commence on a significant Asphalt Road Reseal Program, commencing Tuesday 6 July 2021 and concluding Thursday 15 July 2021.

Due to COVID restrictions dates have been changed numerous times for contractors to mobilise to site. With commencement dates now finalised, works will commence in Port Hedland and then move to South Hedland in the coming weeks. 

Mayor Peter Carter welcomed the progress made in creating a more connected town during the 2021/22 financial year.

“Council and I are committed to investing in Hedland’s road network to build an attractive and liveable town for the future.

“The Town’s Infrastructure Services Team worked hard to strategically identify which roads, paths and kerbs should be prioritised for upgrading, meaning funds were targeted to where they were needed most.

“Infrastructure investment by local government means more local jobs on the ground, supporting economic growth and employment pathways.”

The Asphalt Road Reseal Program will be completed in two stages commencing with the profiling of the road surfaces and then the laying of the asphalt, including:
