En­sur­ing road safety

Mercury (Hobart) - - LETTERS -

IN re­sponse to “Bus ban on the cards” ( Mer­cury, Novem­ber 8), the safety as­sess­ment men­tioned is be­ing done by an ex­pe­ri­enced con­sult­ing firm to guide fu­ture in­fra­struc­ture spend­ing on Pin­na­cle Rd. It is part of a proac­tive ap­proach to en­sure the safety and in­tegrity of the road into the fu­ture, as the traf­fic vol­ume con­tin­ues to in­crease. The as­sess­ment will take into ac­count ve­hi­cle crash data and traf­fic pro­file in as­sess­ing what safety mea­sures or road im­prove­ments may need con­sid­er­a­tion in fu­ture bud­gets. There is no pro­posal at this time to ban any spe­cific types of ve­hi­cle from Pin­na­cle Rd.
