Work starts to keep locals moving around Croom Regional Sporting Complex
1 May 2018
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has today announced that early work to reconfigure the Croom Regional Sporting Complex as part of the Albion Park Rail Bypass project has taken a turn for the best.
Mr Ward said that a new turning lane is being built to provide work vehicles with better access to the complex, which will help reduce disruptions to all road users.
“Where possible, Roads and Maritime Services is committed to reducing the impacts of its projects to motorists which is why this turning lane is so important,” he said.
“This means work vehicles will have dedicated access to the complex so traffic on Croome Road won’t be delayed by heavy vehicles as they come and go.
“In order for work to be carried out as safely and efficiently as possible, changed traffic conditions are in place from today on Croome Road between the East-West Link and Ashburton Drive.
“Work will be carried out between 7am and 6pm and is expected to be completed in around four weeks, weather permitting.
“A reduced speed limit will be in place during this time for the safety of motorists and workers,” Mr Ward said.
“Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and allow extra travel time, as minor delays are expected while this work takes place.
“The community is thanked for its ongoing support and patience.
“Reconfiguration work at the sporting complex includes building a new cricket and AFL oval, grass netball courts, parking and landscaping.
“This work is important as it allows the bypass to be built through areas of the sporting complex and will ensure the community still has access to key sporting facilities once the bypass is complete,” Mr Ward concluded.
