Road up­grade

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

An in­ter­sec­tion on the Henty High­way at Won­won­dah, south of Hor­sham, has un­der­gone a $100,000 re­align­ment to im­prove driver safety.

La­bor Mem­ber for West­ern Vic­to­ria Jaala Pul­ford said the up­grade re­moved a dan­ger­ous three-way in­ter­sec­tion at Cur­tis Road, the Henty High­way and North East Won­won­dah Road.

On av­er­age 670 ve­hi­cles travel through Won­won­dah via the Henty High­way each day, with 30 per­cent of traf­fic made up of heavy ve­hi­cles.

Ms Pul­ford said the in­ter­sec­tion was the site of a ma­jor crash in 2015.

“This sim­ple fix will make this no­to­ri­ous in­ter­sec­tion at Won­won­dah safer and eas­ier to use for lo­cals, freight oper­a­tors and vis­i­tors,” she said.
