Safety to be improved on Stott Highway

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

17 March 2015

Safety for road users on the Stott Highway will soon be improved with resurfacing works commencing from Thursday, 19 March 2015.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the resurfacing works will include a total of 6.9 kilometres on the Stott Highway approximately 2 kilometres east of Swan Reach.

The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the week. DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours.

A 25 km/h speed restriction and some minor lane restrictions will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum 80km/h speed restriction in place until the pavement marking is complete.

These works are expected to be completed by early April 2015, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at a cost of $160 000 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.
