Isis Highway (Bundaberg-Childers), construct overtaking lanes
The Roads of Strategic Importance (ROSI) initiative involved providing a southbound (Bundaberg to Childers) overtaking lane on the Isis Highway near Bundaberg.
The overtaking lane, between Park Estate Drive and the Wyper Park Scout Camp turn-off, will improve safety and travel efficiency.
Works also included the installation of a dedicated right-turn lane for the service road/scout camp access road. The dedicated right-turn lane will improve safety by separating through and turning traffic and reducing the potential for rear-end crashes.
