Project information

The NSW Government is investing in this project between Wyuna Avenue and north of Pelican Beach Road to improve safety and reduce crashes.

Transport will carry out the work along a four kilometre section of the road.

The project involves:

  • widening the road to provide a one metre wide central median and three metre southbound shoulders
  • providing right turn bays into Pelican Beach Road and the car park for Red Gum Trail walking track
  • installing safety barriers
  • installing audio-tactile line marking (rumble strips) which provides a noise and vibratory warning to a driver or rider who has drifted from their lane

Wide centreline

The introduction of a one metre wide centreline will improve safety by providing greater separation between vehicles travelling in opposite directions.

Audio-tactile line marking

The project incorporates audio-tactile line marking (ATLM) on the edge and centrelines of Wilfred Barrett Drive.

ATLM, sometimes called ‘rumble strips’ are small raised bumps typically placed along the edges of roads and in the centre of roads to alert a driver when they are drifting out of their lane.
