Work starts to install guardrail on Illawarra Highway at Robertson

Member for Kiama Gareth Ward today announced that work will commence next week to improve safety at a black spot on the Illawarra Highway near Robertson at Tourist Road.

Mr Ward said that a new guardrail for about 1.2 kilometres will be installed from Tourist Road towards Robertson to ensure safe and efficient journeys for motorists.

“The $100,000 project is funded under the black spot program and is intended to improve safety for motorists, including reducing the number of crashes and providing a barrier from road hazards such as road drop offs and trees.

“Work will be carried out from Tuesday 18th March to Tuesday 8th April between 7am and 5pm, weather permitting.

“During work, one lane will be closed to traffic and will reopen overnight.

“Motorists are asked to exercise caution when travelling through the work site and comply with all temporary signs, speed limits and traffic control measures.

“Every effort will be made to minimise noise associated with the work and local motorists are advised to plan their journey and allow extra travel time,” Mr Ward said.
