EXPECT heavier traffic on Bulli Pass tomorrow with the closure of Mount Ousley Road as a result of the recent severe weather.
Motorists are advised the southbound lanes on the M1 Princes Motorway will close on Wednesday, July 13, to allow for geotechnical and other investigations to be carried out, as a result of the recent severe weather.
The closure will allow for investigation and minor remedial work to be carried out in daylight hours, and outside of peak traffic times, for the safety of workers and motorists. The southbound lanes between Bulli Pass and Mount Ousley Road will close between 10am and 2pm.
A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the detailed geotechnical investigations will be carried out to determine the extent of any damage caused by recent heavy rain and allow some preventative repair work to be safely carried out where needed.
“Carrying out this work under a planned arrangement will limit the requirement for a potential longer-term closure in the future,” the spokesperson said.
Southbound light vehicles will be directed to use Bulli Pass while heavy vehicles over 4.5 tonnes will be held on the Princes Motorway M1 Southbound carriageway between Bulli Pass and Picton Road interchange for the duration of the closure.
Picton Road eastbound will also be closed at the Hume Highway interchange, however, light vehicle access to Wilton Road will be maintained.
Heavy vehicles will be diverted north on the Hume Highway to Campbelltown, Narellan Road, Appin Road, re-joining the M1 Princes Motorway.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
“Transport for NSW is in regular contact with and will continue to work with our freight operators, recognising the critical role they play to our supply chain,” the spokesperson said.
