EXPECT more delays on Bulli Pass with Transport for NSW announcing wider road shoulders, new safety barriers and better road markings among improvements motorists can expect on the Princes Highway, with upgrade work beginning next month.
“Safety improvements will be made to both sides of the road between the bottom hairpin bend on Bulli Pass and Bangalow Road, improving safety by reducing the severity and incidence of head on and run off road crashes,” a spokesperson for Transport for NSW said.
“This stretch of road has a poor crash history and the planned work will help reduce crashes by providing more room for correction and greater separation between vehicles travelling on opposite sides of the road.
“The safety work will include shoulder widening on both sides of the road, a widened centre line and audio tactile line marking, improved curve and installation of safety barriers on the inside edge of the curve.
The spokesperson said the NSW Government will invest $900,000 from the Safer Roads Black Spot program for the work.
Work will be carried out from Sunday November 1 for about six weeks. From Sunday November 1 to Thursday November 4 work will be carried out at night between 7pm and 5am, weather permitting.
From Monday November 9, work will take place during weekdays between 7am and 5pm for about four weeks, weather permitting.
The final week of work will take place at night on dates to be announced between 7pm and 5am, weather permitting.
Single lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 40 kmh will be in place during work hours, and property access will be maintained throughout the work.
Motorists are advised to allow up to 10 minutes additional travel time, drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
Transport for NSW thanks the community for their patience while these essential safety upgrades are carried out.
