DPTI Media Release - Safety to be improved on the Augusta Highway

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

28 November 2016

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

  • South of Weeroona Island, approximately 5.2km reseal. 
  • George’s Corner, approximately 500m reseal. 
  • South of Bungama, approximately 790m reseal.
  • Through Warnertown, approximately 3.7km reseal.
  • Crystal Brook southern access, approximately 3.8km reseal.
  • North and south of Merriton, approximately 3.3km reseal.

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

The work is being 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 applies 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-December 2016, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of 2.2 million as part of the Australian Government’s National Network Maintenance Program

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