$670,000 project to improve Old Pacific Highway
14 January 2014
Member for Gosford, Chris Holstein, advises motorists that changed traffic conditions will be in place from next Monday for maintenance work along the Old Pacific Highway between Somersby and the Hawkesbury River.
Mr Holstein said work on the Old Pacific Highway would involve road resealing at Mount White, Calga, Mooney Mooney Creek and Somersby.
“Work will also involve clearing debris from road shoulders and drains and trimming trees to improve visibility and reduce the chance of branches falling onto the road,” Mr Holstein said.
“The $670,000 project will be carried out in three stages, with work starting between Calga and Somersby on Monday 19 January with the second stage of work between Mount White and Calga scheduled to start on Monday 9 February.
“Stage three between Mooney Mooney and Mount White is scheduled to start on Monday 23 February.
“Each stage of work is expected to take one week and will involve closing a section of the highway for the safety of road users and workers.”
Work will be carried out between 9am and 2pm Monday to Thursday and access for residents will be maintained throughout the work.
Traffic controllers will be in place to direct motorists who are advised to allow extra travel time and follow all signs
Mr Holstein thanks the community in advance for their patience while this essential maintenance work is carried out, with work expected to be completed in mid December, weather permitting.
