Safety to be improved on the Barrier Highway

19 Jan 2017

18 kilometres of road resurfacing works on Barrier Highway will commence on Tuesday, 24 January 2017 to improve safety.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking reseal works at the following locations:

  • 2km south of Oodlawirra
  • 5km south of Yarcowie
  • North of Giles Corner

The works will improve the surface quality and extend the life of the roads.

The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm each day of the week, weather permitting.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, with the road remaining open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.

DPTI advises a 25 km/h speed restriction applies when workers are on site, with a maximum 80km/h speed restriction being in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.

These works, including all pavement marking, are expected to be completed by March 2017, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $600 000 as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
