Safety to be improved on the Barrier Highway
Monday, 18 February 2019
Safety will soon be improved on the Barrier Highway with shoulder sealing and surfacing works commencing Friday, 1 March.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that works will include seven kilometres of shoulder sealing and re-surfacing works on the Barrier Highway between Cockburn and Mingary.
Sealed shoulders will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes and the re-surfacing works will improve the surface quality and extend the life of the road.
Works will be undertaken between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday, with expected completion by end of March, weather permitting.
The highway will remain open, with traffic restricted to one lane under traffic control when required and a 25 km/h speed restriction in place while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.
This $1,200,000 safety initiative is funded by the State Government’s Critical Road Maintenance – State Regional, Safety Program.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users and thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
