Pacific Highway improvements at Belmont North
11 September 2020
Motorists will soon be enjoying safer conditions at Belmont North with improvements starting next week on the Pacific Highway between Avonlea Street and Violet Town Road.
“The $855,000 project, funded through the NSW Government’s Safer Roads Program, would improve safety and reduce the risk of crashes on the highway,” Catherine Cusack, Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Catherine Cusack said today.
“Transport for NSW will be carrying out the work to improve safety on this busy section of the Pacific Highway, which is used by about 30,000 motorists every day,” Ms Cusack said.
“These improvements will also support about 40 jobs from five local suppliers and contractors, delivering for the local economy in these challenging times.
“The safety upgrades include installing a raised concrete median barrier to prevent vehicles from crossing to the other side of the road, adjusting drainage in the median strip, and trimming vegetation to improve sight lines.”
Work will start on Sunday, 13 September, and will be carried out from Sunday to Thursday between 7pm and 5am for four weeks, weather permitting.
Traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place during work hours for the safety of workers and motorists.
