WORKS to improve safety for motorists along West Area Road in Wonthaggi have begun thanks to funding from the National Blackspot Program.
The program is funded by the Federal Government and aims to reduce the number of crashes and level of crash severity on Australian roads.
Bass Coast Shire Council’s general manager Infrastructure, Felicity Sist, said SR Excavations will begin works on February 11, and are expected to be completed by February 16, weather permitting.
“The emphasis of the project is to improve the level of safety along West Area Road, with the works including the installation of advisory and directional signage, and line markings,” Ms Sist said.
“This project is to provide the advanced warning to motorists and improve road markings at five sites along West Area Road in Wonthaggi.”
There will be minor disruptions to the public and road users during these works.
“Council will try to minimise the inconvenience to all road users and surrounding residents,” Ms Sist said.
