Changed traffic conditions for Warringah Freeway signage upgrade at Cammeray
26 September 2014
Changed traffic conditions will be in place from this Sunday for two nights to install new signage structures on the Warringah Freeway near the Miller Street bridge to provide better directions to motorists.
The Warringah Freeway, part of the M1 Pacific Highway, services almost 50,000 motorists travelling daily from the Central Coast and northern suburbs into North Sydney and the CBD.
“Early work was carried out in July and August to excavate and install gantry footings on the median and northern side of the freeway to support the new signs,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“Work to install new to install new metal frames to support rotating signs and remove old infrastructure will take place between 10pm and 5am from Sunday 28 September to Tuesday 30 September, weather permitting.
“Motorists are advised lane closures spanning two kilometres will be in place while the work is carried out to ensure safety of road users and workers.”
A full road closure of the southbound side of Warringah Freeway will be carried out for 15 minutes at 2.30am on Monday 29 September to lift the steel gantry into position by crane. Motorists may experience delays due to these changed traffic conditions.
Road users are asked to allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic controllers and signs, including reduced speed limits.
The work forms part of the NSW Government commitment to improve traffic flow on Warringah Freeway to ensure it serves the community well into the future.
“Once the signs are in place, they will provide better information to tens of thousands of people travelling into the city along the Warringah Freeway, helping them plan their journey,” the spokesperson said.
“Roads and Maritime thanks the community for their patience while work is carried out and will do everything practical to minimise the impact of noise on residents and businesses.
“Up to date information, including any date changes and detours will be displayed on electronic message signs along the road.”
