DPTI – Please Take It Away

SENT TODAY TO DPTI:

Tom Dougherty – Media Officer Media, Engagement and Communications Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure – Media

Hi Tom,

Further to our past communication (in particular the paragraph below) you mentioned;

DPTI is removing the fences along the median as they become damaged. Council should be contacted regarding the fences that run along the service road.

We wish to advise that parts of the green garden hose on wire between treated pine posts, that is the responsibility of the DPTI, has been fallen down and is in disrepair for some months and we were wondering when the DPTI will be removing this eye sore.

SORE EYE 1

The Tailem Bend is currently working towards a number of beautification projects and many within the community would like to see the end of the ugly green pipe fences along our highway.

Looking forward to your reply

Cheers

Glenn

Hi Glenn

Please see the below response from the department. Sorry for the delay on this one.

I was wondering if you would be able to help me with the following questions or you could direct me to the appropriate person?

Along the Princes Highway in Tailem Bend there are a number of treated pine post, wire and garden hose barrier fences.

Some are in between lanes on the medium strips on Princes Highway and others are between the service roads and the Princes Highway.

Questions;

  • Who is responsible for the up keep of these barrier fences? DPTI is responsible for maintaining the fences within the median. Council maintains the fencing that runs along the service roads.
  • If they were to be replaced who would have to be contacted? DPTI is removing the fences along the median as they become damaged. Council should be contacted regarding the fences that run along the service road.
  • Given the size of the shrubs on the service roads are they necessary now? And Refer comment above.
  • What would your office recommend be put in there place? There are no current plans to replace the fencing within the medians.

Cheers

Tom
