About the project

We are widening and sealing the road shoulders of Railton Road in this project. This will be done in stages.

Stage 1: 3.6 kilometres of Railton Road between Youngmans Road and Cement Works Road.

Stage 2: Between Youngmans Road and Dawsons Siding Road.

Stage 3: Between Dawsons Siding Road and Mersey Main Road.

Sealed shoulders reduce head-on and run-off road crashes by providing additional space for the driver to recover control of a vehicle that has drifted out of the travel lane.

Widening and sealing on the road between Cement Works Road and Youngmans Road has already been completed.

Traffic impacts

During construction there will be temporary traffic changes to keep everyone safe. There will be a reduced speed limit and lane closures during our working hours, 7:00 am - 6:00 pm.

Please slow down, and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.


Stage 1 construction started in September 2020 and has been completed in April 2021.

Stage 2 construction started in March 2021 and will be completed by March 2022, weather permitting.

Stage 3 construction started in August 2021 and will be completed in 12 months, weather permitting.
