Safety works for Grantville Glen Alvie Road

Bass Coast Shire Council is completing works to improve safety for motorists along Grantville Glen Alvie Road.

This site identified the need to address safety issues at six corners between The Shuntoff and Bass River Bridge.

Stable Roads Pty Ltd and Carrigy Earthmoving Pty Ltd have been contracted to finalise shoulder pavement works, including cement stabilisation works and final preparation for sealing of the new shoulder and lines.

The works included the installation of guardrail, shoulder sealing and improved delineation of the bends through the installation of edge lines, Raised Reflective Pavement Markers (RRPMs), Chevron Alignment Markers (CAMs) and guide posts.

Council’s General Manager Infrastructure, Felicity Sist, said the combination of these treatments should significantly improve the overall level of safety along this section of road.

“This project was funded under Federal Government Black Spot Program to increase safety and targets on reducing the number of crashes and level of crash severity,” Ms Sist said.

“The emphasis of this project is to provide clearer lines, separate the traffic and roadside hazards, and reduce the chance of run-off-road crashes.”

The works are expected to start this month and be completed before Christmas, weather permitting. Because of the nature of these works, traffic control measures will be implemented onsite.

There may be minor delays to road users during the period of works.
