Bushy Park roadworks well under way

WORK has started on improvements to a major intersection in Bushy Park that will improve safety
and traffic flow in the area. The near $760,000 project is being funded under the Australian Government’s Road Safety Program.

The project will create a right-turn lane from Gordon River Rd into Glenora Rd. This will separate turning vehicles from through traffic, minimising the potential for rear end collisions. These improvements are expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Tasmanian Labor Senator Carol Brown said she was pleased to see work under way to greatly improve the safety of the Gordon River Rd/Glenora Rd intersection. “This is a great example of the Road Safety Program delivering lifesaving road safety treatments on rural and regional roads and providing better protection for vulnerable road
users,” she said.

Lyons Labor MHR Brian Mitchell said the works would support the safe passage of vehicles into and through the
intersection. “These works will prevent road crashes and rear-end vehicle collisions while providing
greater protection for vulnerable road users like cyclists and pedestrians,” he said.

Deputy premier and Infrastructure and Transport minister Michael Ferguson said he looked forward to the Bushy Park community being able to enjoy the benefits of a much safer intersection.
