Bulli Pass reopens ahead of schedule


THE second stage of safety work on Bulli Pass to install rock fall protection safety barriers, improve the safety ramp and carry out slope stabilisation work has been completed a week ahead of schedule and the road reopened to motorists at 2.30pm on Friday October 27.

Work started on Monday August 28 and the road was closed for nine weeks while work was carried out in day and night shifts to complete the project.

As well as spending $5 million on the fence, the NSW government invested $130,000 to improve the hairpin bend on the pass.

“The safety improvements included upgrading signage, widening the road shoulder, adjustments to the safety barrier and line marking to improve safety for all road users, particularly motorcyclists,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.

Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for their patience while this important safety work was carried out.

Work on the first stage of rock fall fencing last year also finished early – with the pass reopening three days ahead of schedule.
