New signage to improve safety along Bruxner Highway

9 June 2020

New signage is being installed along the Bruxner Highway, near the Alphadale Road intersection east of Goonellabah, to warn motorists to slow down and exercise caution.

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said a range of upgrade options were being investigated to improve safety along the road in response to community concerns.

“We know the local community has been calling for enhanced safety measures at this location and we’ve listened, which is why we are seeing signs installed near the intersection of the Bruxner Highway and Alphadale/Cowlong roads - and why we are investigating a range of options to further improve safety in this area,” Mr Toole said.

“The new signage is only the first step towards providing safer journeys for motorists.”

Mr Toole said improving access from the intersection onto the highway – particularly for larger vehicles from the nearby macadamia processing facility - is among options being considered, together with vehicle activated signs.

“Transport for NSW is working closely with the Lismore City Council Traffic Committee to consider longer term options as well as the possibility of changes to speed limits in the area,” Mr Toole said.

Lismore City Council has been engaged to install the 16 new signs which is expected to take a week, weather permitting.
