Safety first on Jingellic Road at Carboona Gap
24 May 2018
Three slopes which angle down steeply towards motorists travelling on Jingellic Road, north of Jingellic, are about to get a lot safer thanks to a $615,000 safety project starting this month.
Member for Albury, Greg Aplin said Roads and Maritime Services will carry out the NSW Government funded project to reduce the likelihood of material along the slopes becoming loose and impacting on the safety of road users and also to prevent further erosion.
“Expert analysis has identified three slopes 13.5 kilometres to 14.3 kilometres north of Jingellic as being at high risk,” Mr Aplin said.
“Work will be carried out between 7am and 5pm on weekdays and between 7am and 5pm on weekends from Monday 28 May, and is expected to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.
“Changed traffic conditions including lane closures will be in place 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.
“Roads and Maritime will make every effort to reduce the impact on road users and thanks the community for its 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.”
