Safety work continues in Royal National Park

Lee Evans Member for Heathcote today announced that due to wet weather, work has been extended to reduce the number and severity of crashes on Farnell Avenue and Audley Road in the Royal National Park.

Work will now continue until Friday 14 March several weeks later than planned.

“The NSW Government provided $470,000 for the project which has been under way since early February,” Mr Evans said.

“Roads and Maritime Services will continue final work to install new one metre wide road shoulders to improve safety for cyclists and skid resistant horizontal lines on weekdays from 10am to 3pm. “Some night work will be carried out from Sunday to Friday between 8pm and 5am, weather permitting.

“Curve warning signs, advisory speed signs, raised reflective markers and safety barriers are also being installed as part of the project.

“Partial road closures will remain in place while final work is carried out to ensure a safe work space.

“Motorists are reminded to follow reduced speed limits and the directions of traffic controllers and allow extra travel time.

“Every effort will be made to minimise noise and disruption associated with the work.

“Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while this important safety work is carried out,” Mr Evans said.
