Works on the $165 million Tiger Brennan Drive and Berrimah Road Overpass in the Northern Territory are powering ahead, with 60 per cent of construction now complete.

To date, extensive works have been undertaken to create the new lanes for Tiger Brennan Drive, the Berrimah Road overpass structure and the high fill embankments.

In the coming months, the new Tiger Brennan Drive carriageways and tie in to the existing road will be completed. Other key upcoming works include earthworks for embankments and construction of retaining walls on Berrimah Road south of the existing Tiger Brennan Drive.

New on and off ramps will also be progressively completed, ready for opening to traffic.

The $165 million, jointly funded investment by the Federal and Northern Territory governments will improve road safety outcomes, reduce traffic delays during peak hours and increase the traffic flow for freight connectivity.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King said the project would support local industries and motorists.

“This project will be a boon for the nearly 20,000 vehicles travelling on Tiger Brennan Drive daily, easing congestion – particularly in busy peak periods,” King said.

“The new overpass will carry Berrimah Road traffic over Tiger Brennan Drive, separating the major flow of traffic on Tiger Brennan Drive from traffic on Berrimah Road, enabling a continuous, safer flow of traffic.”

The project is being delivered by local company, Sitzler, and supported by a host of local subcontractors and suppliers.

The overall project is due for completion at the end of 2024.
