- $3.4 Million upgrade to improve road section with crash history
- Funding from State Safer Roads program
The State Government will spend $3.4 Million to upgrade the Nicholls Curve section of Brookton Highway, east of Hyden, in the southern Wheatbelt.
Transport Minister Troy Buswell said works, funded by the State Safer Roads program, would begin in early January and be completed by May 2012.
“The works will greatly improve road safety by eliminating a series of substandard curves that have a crash history and are a constant source of concern for the local community.” Mr. Buswell said.
“The shires of Kondinin and Kulin will combine resources under the leadership of the Shire of Kondinin to deliver the project and Main Roads Wheatbelt South Region will oversee the project delivery and provide engineering and material testing support.”
“This is yet another example of combining State and local government agency resources to deliver a very good value for money project to benefit Western Australian road users.”
The Minister said the project will also help create local employment opportunities.
