Dressing up the Bruce

MOTORISTS travelling between Cardwell and Cairns will soon notice new road markings and signs at the entry to several townships along the Bruce Highway.

The Federal Government is providing $1 million for the installation of township entry treatments (TET) on the highway to define lower speed zones in built-up areas.

Township entry treatments are designed to improve safety and remind drivers to slow down as they enter towns along the highway.

Nine will be installed on the Bruce Highway at Cardwell, Tully, Innisfail, El Arish, Mourilyan, Mirriwinni, Babinda, Deeral and Fishery Falls.

Senator for Queensland and Special Envoy for Northern Australia Susan McDonald said the treatments would include signs, coloured road surface markings, widened painted median and shoulders, narrowed lane widths and retro-reflective raised road markers.

“The treatments have been installed at many locations across Queensland and have proven to be an effective safety initiative,” Senator McDonald said.

Works will start this month and be completed by mid-May, weather permitting.
