The current road is unsafe with loose rock on cut batters and rock falls onto the road shoulder. The road contains pavement failure, surface ravelling, cracking, seal edge break and an extensive seal edge drop off. Rapid Bay Road is a regionally significant Tourist and Community Access Route and the work will improve the safety of the road particularly for road users (tourists) who are unfamiliar with the road.
The work proposed consists of trimming of roadside embankments to remove loose rock. The reestablishment / repair of the unsealed shoulders to reduce edge drop off and excessive cross fall. Pavement reconstruction and resealing to the road surface to provide a minimum sealed width of 7.2 metres with localised sealing width around bends. Replacement of substandard warning and advisory signage and guide post installations. Installation of a guard rail along the road to provide protection from existing hazards. Reconfiguration of culvert inlets adjacent to the road carriageway. Investigation of speed zoning along the road in liaison with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.
Total cost of proposed project is $1,200,000
