MOTORISTS are advised by the Roads and Maritime Services of changed traffic conditions from Sunday on Bulli Pass for maintenance work to be carried out between Lawrence Hargrave Drive and Bungalow Road.

Work includes repairs of the concrete median barrier damaged in a truck crash earlier this year. The crash, which brought down power lines and caused the truck to burst into flames, closed Bulli Pass for several hours. Fortunately the driver escaped serious injury.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area on Sunday night. To minimise impact to motorists, work will be carried out between 8pm and 5am from Sunday July 28 to Thursday August 1, weather permitting.

The overtaking lanes of the eastbound and westbound lanes will be closed during this work.

Traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40 kmh will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists. Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
