Bonnet Hill uphill safety work progresses
It's good to see the progress being made to build the uphill widened safety shoulders on Bonnet Hill. This work is the result of a strong campaign by the residents and bike advocacy groups including Bicycle Network Tasmania. Widening the uphill shoulders of this popular cycling route will improve safety for all road users.
The first section of the job is from Proctors Rd on the Kingston side upwards.
Note that the crews have sealed further into the Proctors Rd entrance - a good thing as this has been an issue for a long time. The work seems to be progressing well with some innovative ways used to maximise width. The first section is nearly finished.
