Government’s 2003-04 Capital Works Program includes a $3.0m item to extend the bitumen sealing of Larapinta Drive between Kings Canyon and Hermannsburg. Work will commence at each end of the road. There will be 14 km sealed at the Kings Canyon end and 4.5 km sealed at the Hermannsburg end. It is planned that the full expenditure will be achieved within this financial year.
