D'Aguilar Highway Wide Centre Line Treatment

Overview:

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is undertaking detailed design on a $12 million project to improve road safety on a 4km section of the D'Aguilar Highway between King Street intersection, west of Caboolture and the township of Wamuran. Works include widening the 4km section of the highway, installing a 1m wide centre line and removing roadside vegetation to improve visibility and reduce the potential for cross-centre line crashes.

Location:

A 4km of the D'Aguilar Highway between King Street, west of Caboolture and the township of Wamuran.

Completion:

Design for the project is expected to be completed by mid-2020, with construction currently planned for 2020/21.

Benefits:

The wide centre line treatment will improve road safety by providing additional separation between vehicles travelling in opposite directions, reducing the potential for head-on crashes.

Funding:

The $12 million upgrade will be delivered as part of the Queensland Government’s State Road Network Upgrades (SRNU) investment program.

Regions:
North Coast and Wide Bay-Burnett Region - North Coast District

Project info

TMR has started the design work for this 4km road safety project along the D'Aguilar Highway. The D'Aguilar Highway is an important freight route linking the Bruce Highway with rural townships and communities.

The proposed works include widening the road, and installing a 1m wide centre line treatment to provide additional separation between oncoming vehicles to reduce the potential for cross-centre line crashes.

This section of the D'Aguilar Highway was chosen due to recorded incidents of 'head-on' and 'run-off road' crashes.

Roadside vegetation clearing will also be undertaken to improve visibility for motorists and reduce roadside hazards.
