Qube set to add PBS roadtrains on Wimmera Highway

High productivity vehicles of up to 36 metres in length are set to be a frequent presence on the Wimmera Highway in South Australia.

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport is undertaking essential junction and highway upgrades near Naracoorte in a bid to improve freight productivity on the road network.

The two junction projects will facilitate improved freight access for higher productivity vehicles on the Performance Based Standards Level 3A network to Qube Hynam Depot and the Teys Australia Naracoorte meat processing facility.

The projects are both jointly funded (80:20) by the Australian and South Australian governments as part of the South Australian Rural Roads Package.

Construction of two new junctions on the Wimmera Highway will include the provision of sheltered right turn lanes into both businesses; a dedicated left turn deceleration into Teys Australia; new asphalt and line marking; new LED lighting; safety barrier installation; and upgraded drainage.

Major works have already commenced and are scheduled for completion mid-year, weather permitting.
