The Carnavon Highway has similar terrain to the Capricorn Highway through the Drummond Range.

Funding packages worth $111.66m in the recent federal budget have finally paved the way for type 2 road trains to be able to travel into Emerald from the west, according to Barcaldine Regional Council Mayor Sean Dillon.
