Safety to be improved on the Dukes Highway

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

18 November 2015

Safety on the Dukes Highway will be improved with more than 1.7 kilometres of road to be resurfaced commencing on Monday 23 November 2015.

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

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

  • Dukes Highway, approximately 20 km east of Keith for 1.7km.

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, 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 will apply 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 mid January 2016, weather permitting.

The $162,000 works are being funded by the Australian Government.

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