Recycled rubber roundabout to improve road safety

  • Posted on Wednesday 17th, April 2019.

Regional Roads Victoria has confirmed that a new roundabout made from recycled rubber is set to improve road safety for heavy vehicles.

The intersection of Barwon Heads Road and Marshalltown Road, which functions as a feed for five roads in Geelong, has been flagged for improvement by Regional Roads Victoria, following incident reports and near misses over the last five years.

The innovative road design includes road resurfacing works and the installation of a righ-hand turn onto Horseshoe Bend Road from Barwon heads Road, which should allow for better truck movements.

Regional Roads Victoria said to increase safety, a permanent 60 kilometre per hour speed limit has also been introduced on Barwon Heads Road when drivers are approaching the intersection.
