22 May 2017
MEMBER for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead today announced work will commence next week to improve safety on the Pacific Highway at Cundletown and Rainbow Flat.
Mr Bromhead said the NSW Government has allocated $500,000 for upgrades and road improvements at Cundletown and $200,000 for upgrades at Rainbow Flat to improve road user safety at these locations.
“Roads and Maritime Services will carry out the work which involves installing safety barriers at both locations and road resurfacing at Cundletown,” Mr Bromhead said.
“Work at Rainbow Flat will be carried out on the northbound shoulder one kilometre south of Godfrey Hill Road.
“Work at Cundletown will be carried out on the on-ramp and under the Princes Street Bridge.
“Work will be staged along the two sections of the Pacific Highway to minimise disruptions to motorists.”
Mr Bromhead said work will be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 5pm and is expected to be completed in five weeks, weather permitting.
There will also be three nights of night work at Cundletown.
To ensure the safety of workers and motorists, lane closures and a temporary 60km/h speed limit will be in place during work hours with traffic control and signs helping direct motorists.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
