Changed traffic conditions remain as work continues on Windang Bridge shared pathway
8 September 2016
Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra and South Coast Gareth Ward has today reminded local motorists that changed traffic conditions remain in place as work continues to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists on the Windang Bridge at Windang.
Mr Ward said that the New South Wales Government allocated $3.57 million to widen the paths on the bridge from 1.5 to 2.5 metres to allow extra room for cyclists and pedestrians, with work starting in February this year.
“The western footpath on Windang Bridge is now reopened and the footpath on the eastern side is now closed for work to start,” he said.
“Pedestrian access will be maintained with one footpath open at all times.
“Two lanes will be open to morning northbound peak traffic, with one lane open in each direction between 9.30am and 3pm.
“All lanes will be re-opened outside of work hours.
“Concrete barriers are being installed between the extended path and the road to maximise road user safety, while higher handrails are also being installed,” Mr Ward concluded.
