In the Australian Outback near Broken Hill on the Silver City Highway and out of the desert appears what looks to be a pedestrian crossing but is in fact the markings at the beginning of a runway. In just about as remote place as you can get, $5 million has been spent by the NSW Government to build a road runway for the Royal Flying Doctors.

The airstrip can be used 24/7 in all conditions and means residents who had previously travelled up to two and a half hours to get to a hospital can reach help faster. Previously the RFDS had to land on unsealed airstrips on isolated properties with property owners bearing the cost of maintaining the landing area a better solution that is safer and far more reliable opened in 2015.
