Road safety the priority for Beach Road upgrade

Upgrades to the section of Beach Road between Miller Street and Golf Links Drive will improve road safety.

The upgrade extends the median island, reducing the risk of rear end collisions associated with entry and exit to driveways, and allowing improved traffic flow on Beach Road.

A central median island will extend from the existing median near Miller Street and continue south to connect with the concrete island adjacent to the right turn bay into the Club Catalina car park. Along this section of Beach Road driveway access will be restricted to left-in left-out only.

The work also increases safety for cyclists and pedestrians.

The upgrade is scheduled to begin early next year, with $1.8 million funding already secured through the Safer Roads - Saving Lives on Country Roads program and $300,000 from the Regional Roads Repair program.
