Investigations start to improve journey times on Princes Highway at Kirrawee
Thursday 23 February 2017
Lee Evans Member for Heathcote said investigations will start next week to improve motorists’ journey times on the Princes Highway south of Sydney.
Mr Evans said work will be carried out on the Old Princes Highway and Princes Highway at Kirrawee as part of the Gateway to the South Pinch Point program.
This includes work from Auburn Street to Gilmore Avenue and on Oak and Bath roads.
“The investigation work is part of the NSW Government’s $300 million Gateway to the South Pinch Point Program which aims to ease congestion and improve journey reliability on Sydney’s key southern corridors,” Mr Evans said.
“Work will start on Monday 27 February and includes stormwater investigation, which involves using closed circuit television cameras to look into stormwater drains.
“The work also includes potholing to identify stormwater pit locations.
“To minimise the impact to motorists, some of this work will be carried out at night.”
Mr Evans said work will take place along the Princes Highway from about 30 metres west of Auburn Street to about 100 metres east of the Kingsway.
“Work will be carried out between Monday 27 February to Sunday 5 March in three shifts between 9pm and 5am, weather permitting,” Mr Evans said.
“Some work will also be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm.”
For the safety of workers and motorists, lane closures and reduced speed limits may be in place during work hours. Motorists should follow the direction of traffic control and signs. Every effort will be made to minimise the impact of noise on nearby residents.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
