Roadworks will be commencing on the last remaining narrow sections of the Barkly Highway between Mt Isa and Camooweal, work will be starting about 2.5Klm East of Inca Creek and various sections Westward to the the start of the already widened Highway , aprox' 39klm, quite a lot of the work will be new road thus leaving the old road open and clear until completion. / Travellers will more than likely come across oversized loads anywhere between Mt Isa and Camooweal.and Machinery and Water Tankers working near the Highway.
Also there is Roadworks 2 klm North of Cloncurry on the Burke Developmental Road at various locations through to Quamby
