Safety improvements on the way for Burley Griffin Way at Stockinbingal
22 February 2018
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has announced road safety will soon be improved on Burley Griffin Way at Stockinbingal with a number of upgrades to take place from later this month.
Ms Cooke says the NSW Government has allocated $1.95 million to repair and strengthen a section of Burley Griffin Way at Stockinbingal, about 45 kilometres west of Harden.
“The project will significantly improve safety at this location where there is a high incidence of reported and unreported vehicles crashing on the right hand bend. Between July 2012 and September 2017 there were three reported crashes with one serious injury,” Ms Cooke said.
“Work will involve repairing the road surface, improving drainage and upgrading safety barriers, signage and line marking.”
Changed traffic conditions including lane closures will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
The speed limit will be 40 km/h through the work zone during work hours and 60 km/h after hours. Traffic controllers and traffic lights will also be in place.
Roads and Maritime will make every effort to reduce the impact on road users and thanks the community for their patience during this important road improvement work, which is expected to be completed in June.
“Work will be carried out by Cootamundra-Gundagai Council on behalf of Roads and Maritime from Wednesday, February 28 between 7.30am and 6pm weekdays and between 8.30am and 1pm Saturdays, weather permitting,” Ms Cooke said.
Motorists should plan ahead, allow extra time for their journeys and follow the direction of traffic control and all signs.
