Rifle Range Road / Shute Harbour Road Intersection - Airlie Beach

Burchills Engineering Consulting were engaged by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) to undertake a Road Safety Audit of the recently upgraded Rifle Range Road Intersection on Shute Harbour Road located between Proserpine and Airlie Beach within the Whitsunday Regional Council local government area. The location of the Shute Harbour Road / Rifle Range Road intersection is approximately 12.5 km south west of Airlie Beach. At this location, the Shute Harbour Road has a posted speed limit of 100 km/h.

The objective of the Safety Audit was to identify any road safety deficiencies of the upgraded road environment and make recommendations, where appropriate, to remove or reduce these deficiencies. Recommendations included in the report indicated the nature or direction of a solution rather than providing a specific solution to a safety issue.

The project also included a night inspection
