Road safety improved at Buchanan
Monday, 10 July 2017
Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC today announced work to improve motorist safety on John Renshaw Drive at Buchanan is now complete.
Mr MacDonald said the NSW Government allocated $1.17 million in 2016/17 to improve safety for motorists and help reduce the risk of crashes on a curve 350 metres west of Avery’s Lane.
“Roads and Maritime Services completed the work which involved installing roadside and median safety barriers to prevent vehicles crossing onto the wrong side of the road or veering off the road,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Work also included road widening, painting a wider median strip and improvements to the road surface.
“This safety improvement project started in May this year and was completed on budget early this month.”
Acting Chair of the Traffic Committee and Maitland Councilor Bob Geoghegan said “It is very good to see the improvements on this road which is getting busier, as it is one of the mains roads between East Maitland and the Hunter Expressway”.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while these important road safety improvements were carried out.
