Improvements on the way for Braemar Park rest area on Summerland Way
30 October 2017
Motorists travelling between Grafton and Casino will soon have more of an incentive to ‘stop, revive, survive’ on the Summerland Way.
Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis said essential maintenance work is being carried out from today at Braemar Park Rest Area to improve access for all road users.
“Summerland Way is one of the region’s most important transport routes, linking Grafton and Casino,” he said.
“I’m pleased to announce the NSW Government has provided $40,000 to improve the entrance to Braemar Park Rest Area.
“A concrete footpath will also be extended as part of the upgrade to improve wheelchair access to the sheltered picnic area.
“The aim of this work is to encourage more people to stop and take more regular rest breaks to alleviate fatigue, which is one of the main killers on the road.”
Work will be carried out on weekdays from Monday 30 October between 7am and 4pm and take about three weeks to complete, weather permitting.
“For the safety of workers and road users Braemar Park Rest Area will be closed on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 November during work hours,” Mr Gulaptis said.
“During this time motorists are encouraged to use the rest area available 20 minutes to the north at Casino and 20 minutes south at Whiporie.
“I thank motorists for their patience while this important work is carried out.”
