ROAD widening of the Arthur Highway at Eaglehawk Neck will start soon and weather permitting should be completed by mid-year.
The 12-month delay to the start of construction was the result of the need to address Aboriginal community concerns about its potential impact on a significant site.
Infrastructure and Transport Minister Michael Ferguson said a revised design had now been approved.
Mr Ferguson said the revised design meets the safety objectives by providing:
A 1.5 metre wide path for pedestrians from the bus stop opposite Old Jetty Road to Blowhole Road, including a safety barrier and; Three-metre wide traffic lanes and a one-metre wide road shoulder.
