Work begins on Australia’s remote Cameron Corner Road

A section of road leading to one of Australia’s most remote tourist attractions is getting a $2.74 million upgrade to improve safety and access. 

Cameron Corner straddles the border in three states, New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia, and often becomes impassable during and after storm events.

Under the $691 million Fixing Local Roads Program, Transport for NSW has started work to fix a three-kilometre section of the Cameron Corner Road, located in the far north-west of NSW.

When the project is completed in late 2024, motorists including residents, freight operators, tourists, and emergency services – will experience better road surface, enhanced safety, and improved access in the area.

Transport for NSW Regional Director West Alistair Lunn said work will include the realignment of two curves, rehabilitation of the road, drainage improvements, gravel overlay and sealing to improve safety, lessen flood impacts and improve access during wet weather.

“This project will provide a safer and more reliable connection for the local community in this corner of far west NSW,” Mr Lunn said.

“This will have positive impacts for residents, freight and livestock industry, local businesses and emergency services as well as a boost for tourism.”

Transport crews are carrying out the work as the area falls under the Unincorporated Far West Region. 

Construction is expected to take up to 12 months to complete, weather permitting.
