THE Appin Road, between Bulli Tops and Appin, will be closed in both directions from 9am to 3pm for three days next week.

Transport for NSW is planning to carry out what it says is “essential routine maintenance work” between the M1 Princes Motorway and Appin from Tuesday March 10 to Thursday March 12, weather permitting.

Work includes trimming vegetation, clearing gutters and drains, and maintaining guardrails and signs.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said motorists should plan their journey and allow up to 15 minutes additional travel time.

Motorists travelling between Wollongong and Campbelltown can detour via Picton Road and the Hume Motorway. Light vehicles can also use Broughton Pass between Appin and Picton Road.
