The panel contract cuts red tape, saves businesses time and ensures asphalting, sealing and resealing works can be rolled out when and where they are needed while still ensuring all Territory businesses can tender for works.

Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics Joel Bowden said works would ensure a quick response time for roads that have been damaged or impacted by factors such as weather events.

“Sealing roads across the breadth of the Northern Territory is a priority of the [Territory] Government and makes our roads safer for Territorians and visitors,” Bowden said.
