Safety to be improved on Blyth Plains Road

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

24 March 2016

Safety on Blyth Plains Road will soon be improved with shoulder sealing and safety barrier works commencing Tuesday, 29 March 2016.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the works will include a total of one kilometre of shoulder sealing and safety barrier installation at various locations on Blyth Plains Road, between Blyth and Halbury.

Providing sealed shoulders will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes.

Safety barrier protects road users from roadside hazards, thereby minimising the severity of vehicle accident injury and property damage.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users. The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.00 pm, Monday to Saturday.

The road will remain open, with traffic restricted to one lane under traffic control including a 25 km/h speed restriction while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.

The works will commence following the Easter holiday and are expected to be completed by end of May 2016, weather permitting.

The $507 000 safety initiative is funded by the Australian Government Black Spot Programme.

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