Mooliabeenee Road / Crest Hill Rd - Intersection Upgrade - 2020/21


Project Update - September 2020

Works on this project commenced in September 2020.

These works will be undertaken in conjunction with other road works within the Shire. Our team may come and go from site over the next few weeks as we work between our different projects. Traffic management will be in place for the duration of these works, please obey warning signage and take care when traveling in the area.

We anticipate these works to be completed in early November.


Project Overview

This project has been funded by the State Blackspot Program. 

The Black Spot Program was introduced as part of the Australian Government's commitment to reduce crashes on Australian roads. It is an Australian Government Road Safety Program to fix dangerous roads by treating road locations where crashes have occurred. The Black Spot Program also recognises that there are road locations that could be considered as 'accidents waiting to happen'. Therefore, some program funds may be used to treat sites where road traffic engineers have completed a Road Safety Audit and found that remedial work is necessary.

State Government funded Blackspot projects are funded ⅔ by the State Government and ⅓ by the Local Government. 

This project involves the realignment of the intersection geometry to improve the sight distances and therefore make the intersection safer for road users.
