Changed traffic conditions for Halfway Creek to Glenugie Pacific Highway upgrade

9 JUNE 2015

Roads and Maritime Services advises motorists of changed traffic conditions at three intersections along the Pacific Highway for continuing work on the Halfway Creek to Glenugie project.

A spokesperson said during the next month motorists will see changes made to the intersections of Franklins, Luthers and Kungala roads.

“To ensure work on the 12 kilometre upgrade can be carried out safely, changed traffic conditions will be in place including at the intersection of Franklins Road and the highway,” the spokesperson said.

“Roads and Maritime will build an acceleration lane for traffic turning right onto the highway which will require widening work.

“The speed limit will be reduced to 80km/h and minor changes to line marking will be carried out.

“A turn-around facility will be also built north of Luthers Road so heavy vehicles accessing the project site have a safe turning point.

“Overtaking lanes in this area will be removed and vegetation cleared, the highway widened and minor changes to line marking carried out. An 80km/h speed limit will also be in place on this section while work is carried out.

“In June a second turn-around facility will be built at the Kungala intersection also to improve safety for turning heavy vehicles.

“Vegetation clearing, line marking changes and drainage improvements will be carried out and an acceleration lane built for traffic turning right onto the Pacific Highway.”

Delays of up to five minutes can be expected while this work is carried and motorists will be advised of work via electronic message signs.

Traffic control will be in place for the safety of all road users and cyclist and residential access will be maintained at all times during work.
