Anglo American and Banana Shire Council have opened a new major road for Moura, Three Chain Road.

The 12.7km road connects the Leichhardt Highway with the Dawson Highway across the mining lease. 

Construction also included upgrading Memorial Drive, which is a 4.3km road that leads to the Moura No. 2 Memorial and relocated viewing platform. 

 Anglo American began construction of Three Chain Road in 2018, following the closure of Gibihi Road in 2017. 

 Anglo American’s Dawson Mine General Manager, Clarence Robertson said: “We are pleased to partner with Banana Shire Council to deliver this critical road infrastructure for the region.

 “Throughout the duration of the project we worked with local suppliers and procured the majority of material used from the local area.

 “We’re confident Three Chain Road, Memorial Drive and the relocated viewing platform will be important infrastructure for the region, supporting local tourism.”

 Three Chain Road is now open to the public.
