Temporary through-traffic closure for Dunns Creek Road
Dunns Creek Road will be temporarily closed to through traffic for a major road safety upgrade.
A 700 metre section of Dunns Creek Road, Malua Bay, approximately 1.4 kilometres south of The Ridge Road, will be rebuilt to help reduce crashes and road-related trauma to our community. The works will include improving curves, widening lanes and road shoulders, and adding protective fencing. New reflective markers, wide centreline and shoulder line-marking will make night driving easier.
The road closure begins Monday 25 May and is expected to remain in place for three months, weather permitting. During that time bona fide commuters will be able to access Dunns Creek Road from either end but will not be able to pass through the construction site; traffic controllers will escort authorised vehicles to properties within the construction zone.
The work is a part of upgrades to 4.35 kilometres of Dunns Creek Road, under a $1.25 million road safety grant funded through the NSW Government’s Safer Roads – Saving Lives on Country Roads program.
