Safety to be improved on the Dukes Highway

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

13 April 2017

Safety on a section of the Dukes Highway will be improved with more than 3.5 kilometres of resealing commencing on Wednesday, 19 April 2017.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking resealing works approximately 18km east of Keith for 3.5 kilometres.

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

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.

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.

Works will be undertaken between 7.00am and 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and are expected to be completed by May 2017, weather permitting.

These safety improvements are being carried out at an estimated cost of $340,000 as part of the Australian Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Programme.

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