12 April 2016
Work is starting on a $175,000 project to improve signage on the Pacific Highway north of Cowan.
“This work is being funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme as part of a commitment to help reduce the severity and number of crashes on Australian roads,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“From July 2008 to June 2013 there were 28 crashes near Brooklyn Road north of Cowan including 18 where drivers left the roadway.
“The improved signage will provide advanced warning of bends in the road so motorists can slow down early and navigate the corners safely.
“Roads and Maritime will carry out the work on a 2.5 kilometre section of the Pacific Highway near Brooklyn Road north of Cowan.
“Work will be carried out in 12 shifts from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays with the project expected to be completed by Thursday 12 May.
“Changed traffic conditions will be in place during including temporary lane closures and reduced speed limits.
“Motorists are asked to follow the direction of traffic control and allow extra travel time for their journeys.”
