Midland Highway Safety Improvements

The Australian and Tasmanian Government’s are embarking on a 10 Year Action Plan for investing $500 million over 10 years to upgrade the Midland Highway and improve road safety and save lives on Tasmania’s key north-south freight route.

Protector-Rail has been participating in this initiative through various principal contractors on a number of sites along the highway.

The latest is with Hazell Bros on their two current contracts between York Plains to Tunbridge worth in excess of $43million.  Protector-Rail is installing safety wire fencing and safety barrier on both sites worth over $2million.  The works are due to be completed by mid 2019.

Works were tailored for client Insite Management to enable efficient safety management for the site, local residents and through traffic.
