Member for Bega Andrew Constance advised that motorists travelling on the Princes Highway at Mogo will soon experience smoother and safer journeys thanks to a $900,000 package of work.
Mr Constance said the NSW Government is funding the work, which involves rebuilding and resurfacing the highway between Batemans Street and Tomakin Road as well as line marking.
“Roads and Maritime Services is committed to reducing the impact of work where possible, which is why this project will be carried out at night,” Mr Constance said.
“It’s important the small village of Mogo continues to thrive and remains easily accessible for locals and tourists during daylight hours.
“So local trade is not impacted, work will be carried out at night from Monday 21 May to Wednesday 6 June between 6pm and 6am, excluding Saturdays and weather permitting.”
Changed traffic conditions including a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place during work hours for the safety of workers and all road users.
“Access to side streets will be restricted at times and detours will be signposted, with electronic messaging signs displaying the most up to date information,” Mr Constance said.
“Work will be a case of short term pain for long term gain, as once the project is complete motorists will experience smoother and safer journeys through the region.” Media Release
