Intersection improvements set to start at Jigamy Farm

Member for Bega Andrew Constance has reminded motorists that work to improve access to Jigamy Farm from the Princes Highway north of Eden starts on Monday 23 September.
“A safety upgrade will be carried out to widen the Princes Highway, separate through traffic and improve turning safety for motorists accessing Jigamy Farm,” Mr Constance said. 

“The NSW Government has allocated $1.3 million to the upgrade which also aims to reduce the risk of rear end crashes.

“Work will be carried out along 600 metres of the highway near the Jigamy Farm access road junction. 

“Work will be carried out on weekdays from 7am to 6pm. Some weekend work will be carried out on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm and no work will be carried out during the October long weekend. 

“Roads and Maritime Services will also carry out vegetation clearing for about one week from Monday 23 September.

“Motorists can expect delays of up to 10 minutes while trees and branches are safely removed.

“Work on the Jigamy Farm access junction is expected to start on Monday 30 September.

“Some temporary lane closures and a reduced roadwork speed limit of 40km/h will be in place during work hours. Motorists will be guided through the site by traffic control. 

“All lanes will be opened outside work hours and access to Jigamy Farm will be maintained at all times. 

“The safety upgrade is expected to be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting,” Mr Constance said.
