Hume Highway motorists reminded to use alternative rest areas during upgrade
5 December 2014
Member for Albury, Greg Aplin reminds motorists to use alternative rest areas during the $1.3 million upgrade of the Milton rest area on the Hume Highway.
Mr Aplin said the rest area, two kilometres north of the Wagga Road intersection at Holbrook (northbound) on the Hume Highway, is closed for improvements jointly funded by the NSW and Australian Governments.
“The NSW Government is carrying out the upgrade work which includes providing toilet facilities with disabled access and improvements to the lighting, footpaths, picnic tables and chairs at the rest area,” Mr Aplin said.
“During work, motorists can stop at the Four Mile Creek rest area which is 25 kilometres south and Garryowen rest area, nine kilometres north, or at the towns of Woomargama or Holbrook.
“Work is being carried out on weekdays from 7am to 5pm, weather permitting.
“Work started in November and for the safety of workers and road users, the rest area is closed this week for work to take place using heavy machinery.
“All work is expected to be completed on the upgrade by February next year, weather permitting.
“Motorists should allow extra travel time, follow all signs and reduced speed limits.
Mr Aplin thanked the community for their patience during this rest area upgrade work.”
