Project Description

To provide a safer environment for road users by improving the horizontal geometry of the road (in some areas) and providing a sealed road width of 6.0m with 0.6m sealed shoulders. The road is currently unsealed.

Widen the existing 5.0 metre gravel road to a 8.2 metre pavement with a 7.2 metre bitumen sprayed seal. Acquire land and realign one very poor corner to improve the horizontal alignment and safety of users. Widen drainage culverts to suit the new road width and improve roadside drainage. The upgraded road will generally follow the existing alignment. This is the last section of Fulham Road to be sealed and will provide an alternative, fully sealed route, through to Dunalley.

Total cost of proposed project is $700,000
