Capital work on roads includes minor and major safety and traffic improvements, new street lighting, road resurfacing, major rehabilitation works and from time to time new roads.

Darwin’s road network is 442km long. We allocate funds for road resurfacing, reconstruction and new works to ensure the road network meets the comfort, safety and aesthetic needs and expectations of all road users and the community as a whole.

Road Safety Improvements  

We are committed to improving the safety of Darwin’s road network through partnerships with the Federal Government and NTG through Black Spot and Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) programs. This continues to deliver road safety improvements for the community.
