Bethanga/Bellbridge Black Spot Project

Bethanga/Bellbridge Black Spot Project

The next stage of the Black Spot Program in Bellbridge will commence in May 2020.

The $170,000 project was awarded to Towong Shire as part of the Federal Government’s Black Spot Program. The commencement of the project is a welcome announcement following a period of Council advocating for the funding.

The safety improvements on Lake Road will start at the Bethanga side of the Bellbridge township and run for 6km towards Bethanga. The upgrades will include the widening of road shoulders, line-marking, installation of safety guards and new signage.

The project will involve a reduction in the speed limit from 100km to 80km for approximately 4 kilometers, a further measure to improve the safety of the area.

The works will be completed by Szabolics Construction and Tallangatta Construction and Maintenance (TCM) who were successful in the tender process.

The project remains on track for completion by July 2020.
