APR 2022Continuing work
Transport for NSW will continue work to deliver safety improvements on Failford Road from Sunday 1 May following a break in work during the April school holiday period.More information
To minimise the impact to motorists, we will be working at night from Sunday 1 March between 6pm and 5am Sunday to Friday. This night work is expected to be complete in four weeks, weather permitting.
From Monday 16 May we will be working between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday and expect to complete the project in early August, weather permitting
Single lane closures with stop/ slow traffic arrangements and a 40km/h speed limit will be in place during work hours and may affect travel times. Motorists should allow up to 5 minutes extra travel time during this work.
For more information, please refer to the April project notification (PDF,221Kb).
The Australian and NSW Government’s are providing $4.5 million under the Road Safety Program for the safety improvements.
This project will reduce the risk and severity of crashes.
The project includes:
- upgrading the intersection with the Pacific Highway by widening the left slip lane, installing a safety barrier and new lighting. This will improve safety and access into Failford Road for motorists travelling southbound
- minor road improvements at the Tipton Place and Beverleys Road intersections
- installing a wider centreline and audio-tactile line marking (rumble strips) in the wider centreline and on the edge lines. Rumble strips help reduce crashes by providing a vibratory alert when drivers are drifting from their lane
- extending drainage pipes for the widened road
- improving driveway accesses
- removing 21 large trees to allow road widening, improve sight distance and provide a greater clear zone from the edge of the road.
Work started on the $4.5 million safety upgrade on Sunday 13 March and is expected to be complete in early August, weather permitting.
