Heavy Vehicle Alternate Route (HVAR) Stage 2 Update

Published on 02 November 2023


Council is pleased to advise that works on Dead Horse Lane will commence on 8 November 2023 as part of Stage 2 of the Heavy Vehicle Alternative Route (HVAR).

Works will take place on Dead Horse Lane between Midland Highway and Mansfield-Whitfield Road and will include road widening, improvement of the road surface and roadside drainage to deal with the projected increase in heavy vehicle traffic.

Mayor Cr James Tehan said these works once finished will provide significant benefits to the community and users of this route.

“The redirection of heavy vehicles away from residential and commercial streets of Mansfield’s central business district will enhance road safety and improve traffic flow,” he said.

“Council is committed to improving infrastructure across the Shire and we look forward to seeing these works move closer to completion.”

The works will be completed by North East Civil Constructions, who completed the works for Stage 1.

Dead Horse Lane between Midland Highway and Mansfield Whitfield Road will be one way, as per the traffic management plan, for the duration of the works.

There will be traffic management in place and road users are advised to take caution and follow all traffic management signage and traffic personnel.

This $2.5m project is jointly funded by Council and The Federal Government’s Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program.
