$2.5m for lakes road

WORK to seal four sections of the Highland Lakes Rd will begin this summer. Infrastructure Minister David O’Byrne said the $2.5 million upgrade would provide safer driving conditions, particularly at the Deloraine end of the road. The Highland Lakes Rd is the road formerly known as the Lake Highway.

“It will also save money on routine maintenance – by providing a smoother, sealed, all-weather surface,” he said. “The project covers a total of 3.1km, near shack areas south of Breona. Sealing those sections will provide 7km of continuous sealed road.

“This upgrade has been a high priority for the Central Highlands community for some time, and another example of this State government delivering for local communities,” Mr O’Byrne said. “The contract has been awarded to a Tasmanian owned and operated company – Venarchie Contracting Pty Ltd. The work should be completed by April 2012.”
