Transport NSW advise that Centenary Drive works have been postponed
A spokesperson for Transport NSW said "Work to create permanent changes to the Princes Highway and Centenary Drive intersection planned from tomorrow, including the removal of the right turn into Centenary Drive from the Princes Highway, have been postponed.
"A revised work start date will be provided when confirmed." Transport for NSW Director Southern Region, Jo Parrott, had previously advised that the change was recommended after several serious crashes were recorded at this intersection.
“In the five-year period between 2013 and 2018 there were nine crashes recorded at this site, five of which were casualty crashes and two resulted in serious injury – most involving road users accessing Centenary Drive from the highway,” Ms Parrott said.
“Community consultation on this proposal was carried out last year and Transport for NSW determined the preferred option was to permanently remove right turn vehicle access into Centenary Drive.” Transport for NSW advises further studies will be completed before the permanent change is applied and thanks the community for their patience while work is carried out.
