Bulli Pass temporarily reopens for the long weekend
25 September 2017
Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra Gareth Ward has today announced that the Bulli Pass will be temporarily reopened this October long weekend to improve journeys for motorists travelling between Sydney and Wollongong.
Mr Ward said that for the benefit of motorists, the Pass will reopen in both directions on the October long weekend at 3pm this Friday 29th September and close again at 9am on Tuesday 3rd October.
“Work to install rock fall protection safety barriers, improve the safety ramp and carry out slope stabilisation is progressing well with the project on track to be completed by Friday 3rd November,” he said.
“Due to changed traffic conditions caused by the work, a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place on sections of the Pass for the safety of road users.
“Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
“The completion of this work ensures Bulli Pass can continue to function as an important link for the Illawarra and Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
“The second closure started on Monday 28th August and will finish on Friday 3rd November, weather permitting,” Mr Ward said.
