The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is progressing a $12.45 million project to undertake planning and preconstruction activities for future upgrades on CWAR. The project will investigate the alignment for duplication of the remaining single lane sections of CWAR, assess options and develop a cost estimate, business case and detailed design for the most suitable solution.

Construction of any solution is currently unfunded.

Community consultation

Feedback collected to guide the upgrade options.
