Changed traffic conditions on Princes Hwy between Jeremadra and BBay during school holidays
Motorists are reminded of ongoing changed traffic conditions on the Princes Highway between Jeremadra and Batemans Bay for the safe delivery of concrete bridge segments to the Batemans Bay Bridge replacement construction site.
A total of 166 segments are being transported under NSW Police escort from the pre-cast facility south of Mogo to build the new bridge and deliveries are expected to take place at various times throughout the school holidays, including over the October long weekend.
Delivery times will be scheduled to avoid busy traffic times which are expected over this period.
To minimise impacts to motorists and the community, the deliveries will not occur during peak traffic hours, on Saturday afternoons or on Sundays.
The deliveries will also avoid bridge opening times of 11.45am and 2.20pm.
All road users must follow the direction of the NSW Police escort if they are travelling during segment delivery times and may experience delays of up to 10 minutes, due to slower truck speeds and reduced speed limits.
Motorists are advised to be aware of variable reduced speed limits between 60 km/h and 80 km/h on sections of the Princes Highway during segment delivery times.
Road users may experience intermittent delays due to trucks crossing bridges at reduced speeds of 10 km/h along the delivery route.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions; safely use designated overtaking lanes and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
For specific details regarding planned work and special times for segment delivery trips, motorists are advised to check Live Traffic NSW or call 132 701.
Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
