Safety work on Pacific Highway ahead of Christmas holidays
16 November 2017
A $1.7 million package of work to provide safer and smoother journeys for motorists is about to get under way on the Pacific Highway near Camden Haven River Bridge.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said work will involve resurfacing a one kilometre section of the highway as well as adjusting safety barriers and line marking.
“The Pacific Highway is one of the busiest roads in Australia, which is why this work is so important to ensure motorists continue to experience safe journeys,” the spokesperson said.
“Work will be carried out in both the north and southbound lanes of the highway for around three weeks from Friday 17 November.
“Weather permitting, these improvements will be completed in time for the Christmas and New Year holidays, when traffic volumes are traditionally higher than usual.
“Work will take place during the daytime and be carried out in one lane at a time in order to reduce the disruption to the community.”
Changed traffic conditions including reduced speed limits, temporary lane closures and intermittent stoppages will be in place for the safety of workers and all road users.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while these important safety improvements are carried out.
