Project Description

The project will construct safe turning facilities at 3 locations on the Midland Highway: Lovely Banks property entrance near Melton Mowbray; Lower Marshes Road, Jericho; and Bridge Road (also known as Roseneath Road) near Ross.


These upgrades will provide turning facilities so that properties on the Highway can be accessed from both directions and that access to these properties can be negotiated safely.


The Australian Government has committed $1,425,600 to this project with the Tasmanian Government to contribute the balance.


Construction is expected to commence in early 2017 and be completed in March 2017.
