Share your feedback on the night closures trial for Moss Vale Road at Barrengarry and Cambewarra

Following community feedback, Roads and Maritime Services carried out a trial of weeknight planned maintenance closures throughout 2018.

Prior to the trial, closures took place on weekdays between 9am and 3pm.

We are now reviewing the effectiveness of night-time closures and are seeking your feedback.

Please take five minutes to complete the online survey before 19 December and feel free to share with your networks in the community.

Complete the survey now.

The review will be completed in early 2019 and the community will be advised of the results.

The next maintenance closure is scheduled for Cambewarra Mountain in February 2019. The time of the closure will be dependent on the results of the review.

If you have any questions about the survey or maintenance closures, please contact our project office on 4222 3217 or southernroadclosures@rms.nsw.gov.au.
