Road improvements start on the Central Coast Highway at The Entrance
6 May 2015
Road users will soon benefit from improvement work starting this Sunday 10 May along the Central Coast Highway/Wilfred Barrett Drive between Wyuna Avenue and Magenta Drive at The Entrance North.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter & Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC said the NSW Government has allocated $1.9 million to improve road user safety and reduce ongoing maintenance costs along this stretch of the highway.
"Strengthening work will be carried out on the highway surface for 1.45 kilometres, road shoulder widening and linemarking improvements,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Work is expected to take two months to complete, weather permitting.
“To reduce the impact to motorists, work will be carried out from Sunday to Thursday between 7pm and 5am and on weekdays between 9am and 2.30pm.
“Lane closures and a temporary reduced 40km/h speed limit will remain in place during work with traffic control and signs in place to direct motorists.
“The essential road safety improvement work will be carried out by Wyong Shire Council on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services,” Mr MacDonald said.
Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow all signs.
