Additional right-turn lanes and an extended guard rail are among the safety upgrades commencing tomorrow at Wilfred Barrett Drive, The Entrance North.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the $490,000 project would improve safety for motorists and reduce the risk of crashes.
“The NSW Government committed to get this work done at the 2019 NSW State Election, part of a multi-million dollar safety upgrade for Wilfred Barrett Drive,” Mr Crouch said.
“Work will begin on Tuesday, 9 June to provide turning lanes, guard rail and a concrete island at the Wyuna Avenue intersection.
“This has been the site of four crashes in the last five years that resulted in injury.”
Member of the Legislative Council Taylor Martin said the project would be delivered through the NSW Government’s Safer Roads program.
“The work will include providing right-turn lanes into Wyuna Avenue, Two Shores Holiday Park, Terilbah Place and Yellawa Close. Entry to the service road next to Wilfred Barrett Drive will be unaffected, via the south end of Wyuna Avenue.
“Work also includes extending the existing guard rail by 230 metres to the south, and installing a concrete island adjacent to Wyuna Avenue.
“To reduce the impact on motorists, this $490,000 project will be carried out between 7pm and 5am from Sundays to Thursdays.”
Work is expected to be complete by 22 June, weather permitting. Traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place for the safety of workers and road users.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
