Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP has today updated the community on early work for the largest-ever single investment in the history of the Princes Highway; the Albion Park Rail bypass.
Mr Ward said the NSW Government was getting the job done.
“This early work will include continuation of establishment of site compounds and storage areas, placement of concrete barriers along Tongarra Road, Illawarra Highway and the East West Link, and the investigation and relocation of utility services,” he said.
“Signage will soon be installed while tree and vegetation removal, topsoil clearing and the establishment of safety and environmental controls will also to commence shortly.”
Work will be carried out between 7am and 7pm on weekdays and from 8am to 5pm on Saturdays Monday 14th January to Friday 1st March, weather permitting.
For the safety of workers and motorists, some night work will be required and will be carried out between 7pm and 6am from Monday 14th January to Friday 1st March, weather permitting.
A lane closure and a 40km/h speed limit will be in place during work hours, which may affect travel times.
For the safety of workers and motorists, a reduced speed limit of 60km/h on the Illawarra Highway will be in place from Monday 14th January.
Motorists are advised to allow up to five minutes extra travel time, and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
