Work starts to improve safety in Royal National Park at Audley
Motorists are advised work will be carried out on a section of Farnell Avenue and Audley Road in the Royal National Park to improve safety by reducing the number and severity of crashes.
“This $470,000 project is fully funded by the NSW Government,” Heathcote MP, Lee Evans said.
“Roads and Maritime Services will start work on Monday 3 February for four weeks on weekdays from 10am to 3pm. Some night work will be carried out from Sunday to Friday between 8pm and 5am, weather permitting.
“The essential safety work on two curves near the Royal National Park office will include installing one metre wide shoulders, non-skid horizontal lines, curve warning and advisory speed signs, audio tactile line marking on the centre line, raised reflective road markers and road side safety barriers.
“Partial road closures will be in place while work is carried out to increase safety for workers and motorists.
“Delays are expected due to changed traffic conditions.
“Motorists are reminded to follow reduced speed limits and the directions of traffic controllers.
“Every effort will be made to minimise noise and disruption associated with the work.
“Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while this important safety work is carried out.
“This project is part of Roads and Maritime’s commitment to deliver safe, efficient and high quality services and infrastructure to the community and businesses of NSW,” Mr Evans said.
