Safety to be improved on Alpine Way east of Thredbo
Thursday, 30 March 2017
Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions on Alpine Way east of Thredbo next week for work to improve the safety of all road users.
The Member for Monaro John Barilaro said work will take place about three kilometres east of Thredbo and involves replacing two large concrete drains under the road, improving the stability of the road and ensuring stormwater is quickly removed from the surface.
Work will be carried out from Monday 3 to Friday 7 April between 7am and 5pm, weather permitting.
Changed traffic conditions will be in place during work, including alternating traffic conditions between Monday 3 and Wednesday 5 April.
Motorists should plan their trip, allow extra travel time and follow the direction of all signs, including a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h.
Slope stabilisation work will then be carried out, off the road, for the next two months after 7 April, with minor delays expected for the safety of workers and motorists.
Work is expected to be completed by early June, weather permitting, before the start of the busy winter snow season and June long weekend.
The Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
