“In the Territory our roads are vital lifelines that connect communities, and provide work for Territorians and their families,” NT minister for infrastructure, planning and logistics Joel Bowden says.

“The Territory Labor government is ensuring quick response time for roads that are damaged and impacted by weather events.

“Sealing roads across the breadth of the Northern Territory is a priority of the Territory Labor government and makes our roads safer for Territorians and visitors.

“We will continue to invest in our roads, to ensure we continue to improve year-round connectivity and unlock economic opportunities here in the NT.”
