Bass Coast Local News:
$1.35M for road safety works

Bass Coast Shire Council has received $1.35 million in funding to improve road safety along sections of road in Woodleigh and Coronet Bay.

By Portal Admin - 13th February 2017 - Back to News

Funded by the Federal Government’s Black Spot program, the works will be done along Woodleigh St Helier Road from Nyora St Helier Road to 115 Woodleigh St Helier Road in Woodleigh.

In Coronet Bay, they will be done along Agar Road between Soldiers Road and Corinella Road.

"Black Spot projects target those road locations where crashes are occurring," Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield said.

"The emphasis of this program is to reduce the number of crashes and level severity."

Council will appoint contractors to undertake the works, with construction planned to begin in late February 2017 and completed in late May 2017, subject to contractor availability and weather conditions.

The works will primarily consist of signage improvement works and road safety barrier installation along sections of Woodleigh St Helier Road, and of widening the road, sealing of new shoulders and installation of road safety barriers along sections of Agar Road.

There may be disruptions to the public and road users during these works.

Council will try to minimise the inconvenience to all road users and surrounding businesses and residents.

For information or assistance during this project, please contact Council’s Infrastructure Delivery Team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211, or visit for the latest updates.
