Council has commenced works on a major line marking project on Bylong Valley Way, an important regional road that has never been line marked for its entire length before.
While this may not seem to be anything extraordinary, it is another improvement by Council to make this busy road safer for all road users.
Council maintains 39 kilometres of the Bylong Valley Way and has been, over time, upgrading and improving the standard of the road by widening the road pavement to allow for line marking.
Remarkably, until the early 1990s, some sections of this road remained unsealed and delineated. The addition of line marking with edge lines, centreline and delineators will vastly improve road safety in the section through Muswellbrook Shire.
Council’s roads, drainage and works teams have been progressively upgrading sections of the road, to the extent that they can be sealed. Sealing is often described as one of the cheapest, most effective means of ensuring road safety.
Bylong Valley Way is an increasingly important road, not only for residents and industry, but also as a tourist route. The line marking works will have a considerable positive effect on ensuring road safety for all users of Bylong Valley Way.
