Safety work on Moss Vale Road at Cambewarra Mountain

Roads and Maritime has carried out changes to line marking on Moss Vale Road on the eastern side of Cambewarra Mountain to improve safety for motorists.

A safety review was recently carried out which recommended line marking be changed to improve safety for motorists while overtaking on the eastern side of the mountain. This work aims to reduce the incidence and severity of crashes at this location.

Line marking will be changed at one location to allow motorists another opportunity to overtake. There will also be changes at one other location to stop motorists from overtaking where it is not considered safe as visibility of oncoming motorists is limited.

Work will be carried out at two locations on Moss Vale Road, between two kilometres north of Barfield Road and Cambewarra Lookout Road.

Roads and Maritime apologises for any inconvenience and thanks the community for their patience for this important safety work.
