Barneson Boulevard

Works are about to start on the tri-level government funded Barneson Boulevard and Tiger Brennan Drive Stage 3 project with the announcement of the successful tenderer. Local company Territoria Civil has been awarded the project for $45.35 million.

The Territory Government’s contribution has grown from the outset of this project by an additional $5.8 million to ensure the successful delivery of this project.

The Government has listened to the people of Darwin’s requests for additional landscaping, enhancements of the amenity aspects for the new entry and preservation and activation of the heritage listed Frog Hollow Park. This further commitment will ensure the Boulevard will have a tropical, urban feel and will support further economic development in the Darwin CBD, including enhancing public spaces. The increased price also reflects the complexity of the ground improvement works required.

The new Barneson Boulevard link and the final stage of duplication of Tiger Brennan Drive will support approximately 80 jobs through the construction phase and support better distribution of traffic into the Darwin CBD.

A map of the planned works (322.5 kb) is now available for download.

The project is anticipated to be completed by early 2020.
