Improvements to Gipps Road

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will be installing safety signage and improving the road at the bend on Gipps Road, between 45 meters east of Hassall Street.

This work aims to provide better advance warning and to reduce the occurrence and severity of crashes.

An analysis of five year crash data ( July 2009 – June 2014) for this area recorded four casualty crashes involving a head on collision and vehicles running off the road.

This work will include widening the shoulder on the outside, southbound curve on Gipps Road and installing chevron signs and road markers.
