Kakadu Highway fatigue management zones

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics as part of a joint initiative with the Australian Government will be undertaking works to install extended safety barriers and rumble strips to the approaches of crossings along Kakadu Highway.

The project is part of the road safety improvement works along the Highway. Extended safety barriers will be installed at the approaches to Evelyn Creek Bridge, Barramundi Creek Bridge, two bridges at Jim Jim Creek, and three bridges at Nourlangie Creek.

Rumble strips as fatigue management zone trials will be constructed at the southern approaches (Pine Creek end) of Jim Jim Creek and Nourlangie Creek crossings. These fatigue management zones aim to increase driver alertness.

Works commenced in September 2021 and expected to be completed early 2022, weather depending.

The Kakadu National Park attractions will remain accessible throughout the works. Single lane closures are anticipated while works are occurring. Motorists are asked to adhere to all traffic management in place.
