Millions to re-pave “dinosaur trail”
A $7.4 million Flinders Highway upgrade has been completed in time for the tourist season thanks to joint state and federal government investment.
Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said Hughenden was a popular destination for self-drive tourists and dinosaur enthusiasts.
“The Hughenden region is well known for its fossil deposits, including the great Muttaburrasaurus and the Queensland Pterosau,” Mr Bailey said.
“The Flinders Highway provides access from the eastern seaboard to many of our western towns.
“These works have rehabilitated the eastern approach to Hughenden, improving motorists’ journeys.
“Improvements have also been made to drainage, kerbing, property accesses and intersections.”
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormack thanked people for their patience during the works.
“I know traffic disruptions can be difficult for small businesses but I hope the new pavement encourages more self-drive tourists to stop in Hughenden and enjoy the natural wonders of the Flinders Shire,” he said.
The Queensland Government contributed $6.2 million to the project and the Australian Government contributed $1.2 million.
