Fence work is done in bamboo fences at the construction site of a road in South Australia.
The construction of a new road on a rural road is the first major infrastructure project of the Northern Territory’s new $1.4 billion Government Infrastructure Australia (GIA) and Infrastructure Australia of Australia (IAA) projects.
A team of about 30 local men is building a road using a series of bamboo fences that are being cut down in South East Australia to make way for the new road.
Mr Turnbull says the roads will save lives, particularly on footpaths, and will help boost the economy of the NT.
“These new road improvements will help bring more people into the NT,” Mr Turnbull said.
“The biggest problem in the NT is footpath accidents and people die in those accidents.”
We need to do more to keep people safe.””
We are building a new network of footpath and cycleways that will provide safe pathways to work and work places and allow us to be self-sufficient and work and live in the community.
“The road will connect the northern and central regions of the state, including a large population of farmers and industry.
The NT Government says the road will also boost the number of people in the rural areas by more than 200,000, and create 10,000 jobs.
The Government’s main goal is to create 5,000 to 10,00 jobs, the Northern Premier said.
The Northern Territory Government is also providing $20 million for the construction of the road, which will include a number of local road building projects.”
It will provide the road access to farmers and other businesses that would otherwise have to travel further and further distances to get to the other parts of the country.”
