Electronic sign at Gerringong officially switched on
Aug 21, 2017
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward today officially switched on a new electronic message sign providing road safety and traffic incident messages for motorists north of the Belinda Street interchange on the Princes Highway at Gerringong.
Mr Ward said that the electronic message sign will provide motorists with real time messaging about traffic conditions in the area.
“It is great to be here today to officially switch on this sign for the benefit of local and tourist motorists,” he said.
“I love nothing more than fighting for upgrades to the Princes Highway. But this includes making sure we have the best possible signage and traffic advice when motorists are using these new roads.
“In the event of an incident or road closure on the Princes Highway, motorists will be advised of traffic conditions.
“The NSW Government is installing electronic message signs before key journey decision points to provide real-time updates to road users.
“This allows motorists to make more informed decisions about their route and can improve travel time by giving them the right information at the right point on the network so they can avoid delays.
“I know this messaging will ensure motorists are more informed about traffic conditions on this important road on the South Coast.
“The sign is located southbound on the Princes Highway, just north of the Belinda Street interchange.
“The New South Wales Government provided the entire $340 million for the 7.5 kilometre Princes Highway upgrade at Gerringong,” Mr Ward concluded.
