$500,000 safety upgrade for Jingellic and Tumbarumba roads
24 May 2018
An intersection near Tumbarumba with a history of minor crashes is being prepared for a safety makeover to start later this month.
Member for Albury, Greg Aplin said the $500,000 NSW Government funded project on Tumbarumba and Jingellic roads, three kilometres west of Tumbarumba, will improve safety for road users with improvements to be made to signage and linemarking as well as drainage and repairs to road shoulders.
“Work will be carried out by Snowy Valleys Council on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services on weekdays between 7am and 5pm and on Saturdays between 7am and 1pm, from Monday 28 May, and is expected to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.”
“The NSW Government is committed to improving safety on our roads and diligently working to make the Towards Zero campaign a reality,” Mr Aplin said.
“This intersection has an above-average rate of minor crashes. This project aims to improve safety for road users by reducing the likelihood and severity of crashes.
“Changed traffic conditions including lane closures will be in place during work for the safety of workers and motorists.
“The speed limit will be 40 km/h through the work zone during work hours and 80 km/h after hours. Traffic controllers and traffic lights will also be in place to guide motorists through the site.”
Roads and Maritime will make every effort to reduce the impact of this work on road users and thanks the community for their patience while this important road improvement work is carried out.
Motorists should plan ahead, allow extra time for their journeys and follow the direction of traffic control and all signs.
