Indigenous training organisation Myuma will seal almost 10 kilometres of the Gregory Downs-Camooweal Road as part of the COVID-19 economic recovery stimulus programs.
Myuma will deliver $4 million of sealing works as part of the federal government's stimulus programs, jointly funded on an 80:20 basis with the state government.
Myuma is a not-for-profit Indigenous training organisation that has worked with the Department of Transport and Main Roads since 2000 on several road projects and alliances.
Most of the 200km-long Gregory-Camooweal Road is currently sealed.
Myuma Managing Director Colin Saltmere said the funding would help with the advancement of and access to major centres for Indigenous people in North-West Queensland.
"By delivering these road projects, we continue to keep our people in work and advancing their skills with tailored training," Mr Saltmere said.
"Our priority is supporting our people with training and jobs, as well as with life skills that set them up for a good future.
"We welcome opportunities to be part of delivering road projects while supporting our people and protecting our culture and heritage."
Works are due to start from mid April and are expected to be completed by the end of June 2022, construction and weather conditions permitting.
