Safety work continues on Princes Highway
21 May 2015
Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock today advised motorists work is continuing to improve safety on the Princes Highway south of Ulladulla.
Mrs Hancock said the NSW Government allocated $650,000 for improvement work on a three kilometre stretch of highway between Mile Peg Road and Cockwhy Creek.
“This stretch of road was identified for road safety improvements after 16 crashes in the five years to December 2013, a majority involving cars leaving the road,” Mrs Hancock said.
“Roadside hazards were removed in March allowing the road to be widened to increase recovery room for motorists at the bends.
“Work now under way will improve sight distance for motorists at the bends. Improved drainage and guardrails will also be installed.”
Work is being carried out between 7am and 5pm on weekdays and motorists are advised changed traffic conditions are in place including a reduced speed limit of 60km/h.
“There is one lane of traffic in each direction past the work site with the northbound overtaking lane converted into the southbound lane,” Mrs Hancock said.
“This means minimum disruption to traffic in the area of the work.”
