Can’t help you with the Plenty, but the Donahue should only have around 84 kms of gravel left. Be surprised if the Plenty hasn’t had some repair work done on it.

Thanks Bob Y that's a good help. I am presently at Alice Springs and intend to travel east via those two roads with a Ford Ranger and an off road van in a week or so. I have heard from a truck driver that there are no real problems, but he drives a road train and his perspective is different to mine.

Will be hard to get a decent road report, one persons ok is another persons atrocious. I tried getting a road report for that same road several years ago, the variations in reports was from one end of the scale to the other (not bad to worst road they’d ever driven)...in the end the road was better then I expected it to be, even with it’s corrugations and bulldust holes.
