The installation of the permanent throw screens along the Southern Expressway to combat rock throwing will begin within weeks.
The Marshall Liberal Government is delivering a suite of measures to combat the long-standing problem of rock throwing along the Southern Expressway.
“The Marshall Government is delivering these safety measures to tackle this long-standing problem and keep the community and motorists safe,” said Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll.
“I would ask the public for their patience as these permanent throw screens are installed as sections of the Southern Expressway will have to be closed.
“The first permanent throw screen will be installed on Honeypot Road, with the roll out of the remaining throw screens to continue into January.
“This should have been done years ago and is yet another example of the Marshall Government cleaning up a Labor mess.
“We’re delivering $15 million to help keep the community safe with measures including permanent throw screens, upgrading CCTV and installing mesh over loose rocks.”
