Midland Highway 10 Year Action Plan

York Plains to St Peters Pass

York Plains to St Peters Pass

The works

This project improved five kilometres of Midland Highway, starting from two kilometres south of York Plains Road and continuing to the St Peters Pass rest area.

Works began in March 2018 and were completed in winter 2019.

The road has been widened to provide four kilometres of new passing lanes, and a central flexible safety barrier has been installed to prevent head-on collisions.

During the project we reduced roadside hazards, added a heavy vehicle turning facility on York Plains Road, extended sealed road shoulders and landscaped the area.
