The Building better roads project was an initiative to develop a serviceable road in Djarindjin, Western Australia (WA), in order to reduce the significant dust problem and address the associated respiratory health, road safety and wellbeing issues of the community. Environmental health workers and Community development employment program workers from Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation collaborated with locals to construct 1,600 metres of formed and graded gravel road. The community was also successful in obtaining a water cart and front end loader to assist in local maintenance of the road.
The Indigenous community of Djarindjin is located in a remote area about 200km north of Broome in WA, and is home to approximately 320 people.
