A 4km sealed section of Marlborough Road between Lyell Highway and Bronte Park in Central Highlands, Tasmania, will be repaired and have its intersection upgraded.
Tasmanian Minister for Infrastructure and Liberal Member for Lyons, Rene Hidding, said, “These works are preliminary and necessary due to the degraded nature of the road following the heavy rains over the past year.
“Tenders will be let this winter for a full rehabilitation and a new seal of the 4kms sealed section during Spring 2017.”
Central Highlands Mayor, Loueen Triffitt, said the upgrade was a great outcome and would result in a better road experience and increased safety for both locals who use the road every day, and also tourists visiting this picturesque part of Tasmania.
This announcement follows on from the major project underway on the Highland Lake Road that will see the sealing of the full length of the road.
