Maintenance work on Princes Highway at Milton to improve safety
Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock today announced that safety is set to improve on the Princes Highway north of Milton with work to start later this month on a $2.3 million upgrade.
Mrs Hancock said the NSW Government provided $2.3 million towards the project to deliver safe, efficient and high quality services and infrastructure to the community and businesses of NSW.
“Work will include removing vegetation from a slope about four kilometres north of Milton to prevent rock falls onto the highway.
“The road shoulders will also be widened to provide motorists with more room to recover if they leave the road to minimise the risk of crashes,” Mrs Hancock said.
“Roads and Maritime Services will carry out work from Monday 19 May to mid September on weekdays from 7am to 6pm and Saturday from 8am to 2pm, weather permitting.
“One lane of the highway will be closed to motorists.
“Motorists will be able to travel past the worksite under the direction of traffic control and are advised to allow extra travel time.
“Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while this important work is carried out.
“The NSW Government is getting on with the job of delivering major road improvements for the South Coast including continuing planning to improve the Princes Highway at Termeil Creek and Burrill Lake as well as opening the $62 million South Nowra Princes Highway duplication,” Mrs Hancock said.
