Project Description

Booborowie Rd is a high maintenance open surfaced road requiring major reconstruction as it is too narrow in sections and contains dangerous curves. It is the main north/south commodity route for the surrounding area due to the construction of bulk hay storage facilities and has experienced greater heavy vehicle usage during harvest periods.

Additional fill of 5,000m3 required on Booborowie Rd between Braefoot and Gum Creek Rd to achieve a satisfactory vertical alignment to a sub grade level to accommodate the new drainage works. 1.5km of guard rail will be installed on Booborowie Rd between White Rd and Dip Rd in order to increase road safety by providing protection from several deep culverts and creeks from several large/steep batters. Additional signage will be installed to advise motorists of potential hazards on these highlighted sections of Booborowie Rd.
