$700,000 upgrades to Bruce Hwy widening project

DRIVING between Loeskows and Inskip Rds should soon become safer thanks to a $700,000 pavement widening project on the Bruce Hwy at Booyal.

A wide centre line will be installed along a seven kilometre stretch of road to reduce the risk of head-on collisions, along with shoulder widening and embankment improvements.

The construction of a clear zone on the side of the highway will allow drivers to regain control if their car veers from the road.

The upgrades should be finished by mid-2016.
