The video was shot in the small local government area of the Shire of Moora in the northern Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, about 180 kilometers (112 mi) north of Perth

In the northern Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, the small Shire of Moora area recently became famous thanks to a video its council shot to show a road upgrade. A total of 4.9km was completed over a two-day period, while the beautiful work was done with great precision!

The video was filmed with a drone and soon became viral, while the total number of followers of the council’s happenings being now one of the highest of any local government in WA. It was posted on the Shire’s Facebook page in late 2017, with the council posing the question: “Have you ever seen how a road is bituminised?”, adding “a great job by our road works crew and works supervisor Trevor Longman with the shire’s drone for the footage”. The work was part of a $443,000 upgrade to Airstrip Road, funded through Roads to Recovery.
