Feedback is invited until Wednesday 29 July 2020.
The NSW Government is investing in safety improvements on the New England Highway between Glennies Creek and McInerney Road at Camberwell.
The proposal involves:
- installing a one metre wide painted centreline along a 350 metre section of the highway between 50 metres east of Lethbridge Street and 80 metres west of Glennie Street. The introduction of the centreline will improve safety by providing greater separation between vehicles travelling in opposite directions
- installing audio-tactile line marking along the edge and centrelines
- upgrading drainage on both sides of the highway
- installing a roadside safety barrier on the northern approach of the bridge over Glennies Creek
- improving line markings and installing new signage
- introducing a left in and left out at Alpha Street from the New England Highway. Motorists wanting to make a right in and right out at Alpha Street will need to use the McInerney Road intersection.
The introduction of a one metre wide centreline will improve safety by providing greater separation between vehicles travelling in opposite directions.
Audio-tactile line marking
The proposal incorporates audio-tactile line marking (ATLM) on the edge and centrelines along sections of the highway.
ATLM, sometimes called ‘rumble strips’ are small raised bumps typically placed along the edges of roads and in the centre of roads to alert a driver when they are drifting out of their lane.
We will carefully consider your feedback on the proposed safety improvements and continue to keep you updated as the project progresses.
