Changed traffic conditions for night work on Warringah Freeway
13 January 2014
Motorists are advised changed traffic conditions will be in place from tonight on the Warringah Freeway, from Lavender Street at North Sydney to the Brook Street overpass at Naremburn.
“The Warringah Freeway, part of the M1 Pacific Highway, services the many thousands of motorists travelling daily between the Northern Beaches and the CBD,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“Resurfacing work is planned this month while traffic volumes are at their lowest, to improve road safety for all road users and ensure the road serves the community well into the future.
“Maintenance work will be carried out from tonight for 12 consecutive nights except Saturdays between 8pm and 5am until Thursday 30 January, weather permitting.
“Downer EDI, on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services, will resurface the freeway and the on and off ramps between Lavender Street North Sydney and Brook St at Naremburn.
“Detours will be in place while work is carried out to ensure a safe work space.
“Progressive closures will be in place for the Pacific Highway and High Street off-ramps northbound, the Mount Street exit connecting to Arthur Street northbound, the Mount Street on-ramp from Arthur Street southbound and the Kirribilli on-ramp to Cahill Expressway southbound.
“Resurfacing of the ramps will be completed during the closures to improve the surface and reduce future maintenance costs.
“A reduced speed limit and traffic controllers will be in place during the night work.
“Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience during the work. More work is planned for later in the year. Motorists will be advised again before it takes place,” the spokesperson said.
