The Bass Point Tourist Road project is nearing completion with kerb, gutter and storm water now complete.

The next stage of this project will see the construction of 4 raised wombat crossings for pedestrian and driver safety in the area.

To ensure this important work happens safely, Bass Point Tourist Road will be closed from Monday 18 July – Friday 22 July. This activity has been scheduled outside the school holiday break to minimise impact to the community.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
