This project will construct a 1.1km ring road and seal a 3200m² truck turning area within the new Napranum Industrial/Commercial precinct. There is a current housing shortage for both mine workers and families in the region due to the growth in the resources sector and recent approval of the South of Embley mining project. Rio Tinto has entered into an agreement to provide additional housing for resource sector employees and contractors. The housing units will be manufactured and transported from the new RBS factory in the Napranum Industrial/Commercial precinct. The project will enable greater access and road safety for increased traffic flow and heavy vehicles requiring access to the precinct.
