28 February 2018
Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra Gareth Ward has today announced that essential maintenance work will be carried out from next Monday to improve pedestrian safety and remove graffiti on the pedestrian bridge across the Princes Highway at Bulli.
Mr Ward said that the New South Wales Government has provided $150,000 for this work which involves replacing safety mesh on the bridge, removing graffiti and clearing vegetation.
“Removing graffiti on the bridge will greatly improve the aesthetics of the bridge for motorists travelling along the Princes Highway,” he said.
“Crews will also aim to remove graffiti impacting the Bulli Township signwriting and replace safety mesh which will improve pedestrian safety and help prevent further graffiti on the bridge.
“Work will be carried out from next Monday 5th March for three weeks, weather permitting and excluding public holidays.
“Work will be carried out between 7.30am and 3pm during the week, with night work expected to be carried out from late March for another three weeks.
“The community will be kept informed before work in late March is carried out.
“To ensure the safety of workers and all road users, a temporary reduced 40 km/h speed limit, lane closures and traffic control will be in place to direct motorists through the work site.
“I thank the local community for its patience whilst this important work is being carried out,” Mr Ward concluded.
