15 October 2014
Roads and Maritime Services advises road users changed traffic conditions will be in place on a section of George Booth Drive at Edgeworth from next Monday for safety upgrade work.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said a section of George Both Drive west of the Northville Drive roundabout is being upgraded to improve road safety.
“The NSW Government has provided $180,000 to install around 100 metres of guardrail to reduce the risk and severity of off road crashes,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
“Work to install the guardrail will start on Monday 20 October and is expected to be completed in three weeks, weather permitting.
“This work will be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 5pm and on Saturdays between 7am and 1pm.
“George Booth Drive will remain open to traffic while the installation work is completed with a temporary 40km/h speed limit to be in place during the work and some short delays may be experienced.”
Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow all signs. Traffic control will be in place to ensure the safety of workers, motorists and other road users.
Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience during this work.
