Project Description

The existing junction has relatively high maintenance costs and the existing pavement is failing due to traffic from the Cattle Track turning across the superelevation on Main Road. This Y-Junction has become a major safety concern due to the increased traffic volumes using it.

The work proposed includes a re-alignment of the y-junction at Cattle Track and Main Road. The existing tight (220 metre radius) curve on Main Road will be replaced with a 450 metre radius curve and a straight prior to the junction. The new junction will be widened with with an 8 metre wide seal and 1.5 metre wide unsealed shoulders and have a new BAL left turn treatment and a BAR right turn treatment.

Total cost of proposed project is $498,892
