Safety to be improved on National Highway Network

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

28 September 2016

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

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

  • South Eastern Freeway, approximately 4km east of the White Hill Interchange, east bound carriageway for 500
  • Dukes Highway, approximately 22 km east of Keith for 1.5km

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 October 2016, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $80,000 as part of the Australian Government’s National Network Maintenance Programme.

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