CONSULTATION NOW CLOSED. FINAL DESIGN LAUNCHED.

Thank you to the community members who provided input to Stage 3 consultation of the concept design for road safety upgrades at Pinelands and Holtze. The Department has completed consultation for the Pinelands road safety upgrades and a final concept design is available for review in the Document Library.

The Pinelands and Holtze precincts are busy industrial areas along the Stuart Highway, southeast of Darwin where businesses are serviced daily by heavy vehicles and road trains. In 2016, the department commenced a planning study to improve safety and access into Pinelands and Holtze. The objectives of the planning project are to:

  • improve road safety for heavy vehicles and all road users
  • provide more efficient and functional access to Pinelands and Holtze for all vehicles
  • address existing road safety concerns about access in and out of Pinelands and Holtze
  • upgrade infrastructure to accommodate future growth in the area
  • maintain an acceptable level of service for future traffic increases on arterial connecting roads
  • respond to the area’s changing economic profile and future land use planning.

The final concept is based on three stages of community consultation. To download a copy of the Fact Sheet or to view the design, please go to the Document Library on the right, or visit our project website at: dipl.nt.gov.au/pinelands
