New warning signs installed on Narellan Road near the Hume Motorway off ramp
Friday April 22 2016
Additional signage has been installed on Narellan Road near the Hume Motorway off ramp at Kenny Hill Road to provide motorists with advance warning of changed traffic conditions as work continues on the $114 million upgrade.
“Since last month, Narellan Road westbound near Kenny Hill Road has been reduced to two lanes to allow work to progress on the next stage of the Narellan Road upgrade, jointly funded by the Australian and NSW governments.
“Roads and Maritime Services has carried out a Road Safety Audit in response to feedback conveyed to the Member for Camden, Chris Patterson from the community to ensure appropriate signage and warnings are in place for motorists travelling through the work site.
“ I am pleased that as a result of the audit, an additional electronic variable message sign and additional pavement markings have been installed to provide more advance warning and better visibility of the lane closure” Chris said.
“The community is thanked for its patience while work continues on this section of Narellan Road which includes relocating underground utilities, upgrading intersections and bridge widening.
“Cyclist detours will remain in place between Mount Annan Drive, Mount Annan and Alamein Avenue, Narellan Vale for around 12 months to maintain the safety of all road users.
“These detours were developed in consultation with a local cycling community group and Campbelltown City Council.
“The first stage of the Narellan Road upgrade was opened to traffic this month. Work on the second stage is expected to be completed by mid-2018, weather permitting.
