More improvements

Mr Chester said the shoulder widening, improved line marking, surface repairs and other safety upgrades were making a difference and he was looking forward to more significant improvements over the next two years. "I secured $2.7 million for the first stage of works and there's another $10 million committed to improve safety and the resilience of the road, particularly in times of natural disasters."

"With one road in and out of Mallacoota it is essential the road corridor is made more resilient to withstand natural disasters like bushfires and wind storms. Slow vehicle pull over lanes will allow vehicles to safely overtake when necessary, and improving sight lines means drivers can better prepare for the upcoming turns and drive to the conditions." Mr Chester said.
