Maintenance work to start on Princes Highway at Milton
Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock today announced road safety will be improved on the Princes Highway at Milton with Roads and Maritime Services carrying out essential maintenance work.
Mrs Hancock said the NSW Government has provided $80,000 for the work, which includes patching the road surface to provide a safer journey for road users.
“Work will take place at three locations including near the Caltex service station just south of Slaughterhouse Road, near the Heritage Bakery at the intersection of Matron Porter Drive and 200 metres south of Corks Lane,” Mrs Hancock said.
“Work will be carried out between 7pm and 5am and will take two nights to complete, weather permitting,” she said.”
“One lane will be open to traffic during work and reduced speed limits will be in place. All lanes will be reopened during the day.
“Motorists are asked to follow all signs and direction of traffic controllers.
“The project is part of the NSW Government’s commitment to delivering safe, efficient and high quality services to the community and businesses of NSW.
“The NSW Government is significantly investing in road project across the Southern Shoalhaven with the June State Budget confirming construction will commence on the Termeil Creek deviation with $5 million committed.
“Planning works will also be concluded for the replacement of the Princes Highway across Burrill Lake with $3 million set aside.
“The replacement of the Burill Lake Bridge remains my top priority for the Southern Shoalhaven and I will continue to lobby for funds to commence construction as a matter of priority,” Mrs Hancock said.
