This project included the upgrade of 3.1km of the Midland Highway through the Bagdad township, involving:
- Installation of a 3.0km median turn lane;
- Installation of a 2.1km central median containing flexible safety barrier;
- Widening of sealed shoulders to 2.0m;
- Access improvements; and
- Strengthening and widening of Horfield Creek Bridge.
Road widening was conducted on the first 2km of the project to accommodate a simple turn lane to ultimately improve safety for road users. There are a large number of property accesses (40+)throughout this section of highway.
Improved the urban environment in and around the hub of Bagdad, with new pedestrian crossings and stairs down to the service station, kerb and gutter, and truck pull-outs on both sides of the road.
Horfield Creek Bridge was widened and the existing structure was strengthened to accommodate a simple turn lane.
Pedestrian refuges in the centre of the road to improve pedestrian safety throughout Bagdad township.
