Safety to be improved on section of the Hume Highway north of Holbrook
21 June 2018
Daryl Maguire MP, Member for Wagga Wagga announced safety will be improved at the Kyeamba rest areas on the Hume Highway, 45 kilometres north of Holbrook, with the installation of vehicle activated signs.
Mr Maguire said the NSW Government is funding the $430,000 project from the NSW Blackspot Program, with work to start from Monday 25 June.
“These signs will advise drivers of slow moving trucks at this location so they are prepared to slow down and avoid rear end crashes,” Mr Maguire said.
“Both the northbound and southbound rest areas are located on a bendy section of road, with steep batters and thick vegetation.
“With slow moving heavy vehicles coming in and out of those rest areas on busy highway, the installation of these vehicle activated signs will significantly improve road safety.”
Work will be carried out from 6am to 6pm on weekdays, with work expected to be finished by Friday 29 June.
Traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
Roads and Maritime Services thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
