Highland Lakes Road, 'Pub with no Beer' Corner Safety Upgrade

The State Government is committed to improving safety on the Highland Lakes Road near Bothwell at the 'Pub with no Beer' Corner.

About the project

We are realigning about 800m of the existing section of the Highlands Lakes Road at the 'Pub with no Beer' Corner.

Access to the 'Pub with no Beer' rest area will be maintained during the construction phase. The rest area will still be available to road users during construction and after the project is complete.

The project will deliver improved road safety and freight transport movements.


The project is currently in the design phase. Construction is expected to start in late 2020.
