New CCTV for improved safety and traffic flow at Yass Valley Way intersection with Hume Highway
21 November 2014
Member for Burrinjuck, Katrina Hodgkinson has announced that a new closed circuit TV camera will be installed at the southern Yass Valley Way and Hume Highway interchange by the NSW Government to monitor peak traffic flow and provide improved responses to crashes.
Katrina said the $60,000 project started this week to install the camera, which would take about one month to complete, weather permitting.
“The camera will help monitor crashes in the area to direct the most appropriate response,” Katrina said.
“It will also help with the monitoring of traffic flow during times of peak holiday travel and to help with the implementation of diversions to improve traffic flow.”
Motorists travelling along these roads are advised of possible delays while the camera post is unloaded and installed.
One lane will be closed to traffic for up to 15 minutes while this work is carried out and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will apply. Motorists will be guided through the work site by temporary traffic lights.
Motorists should allow extra travel time, follow all signs and the direction of traffic control.
Katrina said a number of CCTV traffic monitoring cameras have been installed across South West Region State Road network.
Katrina thanked the community for their patience during the installation work, which is due for completion in mid-December, weather permitting.
