THE Bendigo-Redesdale Road will soon benefit from safety improvements in a $2.3 million investment package.
Works will begin soon to improve cushioning and add rub rail protection to existing barriers, as well as resealing work to smooth out the pavement and to prevent loose gravel getting on to the road from side access roads and driveways.
VicRoads acting regional director, northern region, Brian Westley said motorcyclist safety is a priority and motorcyclists deserve the safest environment possible.
“Issues that seem small for a driver can be disastrous to a motorcyclist, like gravel on the road or an uneven road surface, particularly at corners,” Mr Westley said.
“I know these simple measures will significantly improve motorcycle safety across our region.”
Bendigo-Redesdale road is part of a seven-road project that is expected to be completed by mid-2018.
