Residents asked to have their say on Batlow Road intersection
27 July 2020
Snowy Mountains residents and road users are invited to have their say on improving safety at the Batlow Road and Snowy Mountains Highway intersection.
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said the NSW Government is investigating additional options to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes in the area and community consultation was an important part of the process.
“The busy intersection west of Tumut is used by residents, commuters and visitors as it links to the Hume Highway, national parks and the Snowy Mountains to the south, and is a key freight route for timber and agricultural distribution,” Mr Toole said.
“Data shows the majority of fatalities on country roads are local residents, and this project aims to ensure those who set off on a journey return home safely.
“While work has been carried out previously to improve safety at the intersection, there’s still more to do.
“The community’s feedback will help Transport for NSW understand their needs and concerns and deliver the best outcome for them.”
Residents can go online to access an interactive map and add comments to specific locations until 5pm on Monday 31 August at nswroads.work/batlowroad
All comments will be captured and responded to in a consultation report, which will be made available to the community in the months following the close of consultation.
