A three-year, staged program of safety improvements, to address road width and geometry issues, is underway on South Coast Highway.
Mead Road Passing Lane was completed in June 2019 and included construction of a westbound passing lane between Killarney Road and Monty’s Leap Winery, along with widening works and a 2 metre sealed shoulder in each direction.
Work on the Kalgan section, which included widening the existing pavement from 7 metres to 11 metres from Monty’s Leap Winery to the Kalgan River Bridge, was completed in April 2020.
The final stage of works will see construction of two passing lanes between Bluff Creek and Kojaneerup West Road. Tenders for this work have been called under the new State-wide Construction Panel Contract, with construction expected to commence in November 2020.
