Cessnock road safety improved at Gillieston Heights

Roads and Maritime Services has now completed work to improve safety on Cessnock Road at Gillieston Heights.

Liberal Upper House MP and Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald said the NSW Government allocated $4 million last financial year to strengthen and improve the road for the 15,000 motorists who use Cessnock Road each day.

“Work involved widening the road shoulders and strengthening a 1.66 kilometre section of the road from Russell Street to north of Testers Hollow,” Mr MacDonald said.

“Minor drainage work was also carried out to improve stormwater runoff along with the installation of roadside safety barriers to improve motorist safety.

“Roads and Maritime started the safety improvement work in October last year and it was completed mid this month.”

The community is thanked for its patience while these important road safety improvements were carried out.
