About the project

We’ve added flexible road safety barriers on the sides of the road, wide centrelines, widened shoulders and rumble strips to prevent people being killed and seriously injure don the route. We’ve also made improvements to some property accesses, the cemetery entrance and some intersections along the route.  A designated turnaround bay for buses has been built at Jary Rd.
