Motorists on the Central Coast are advised of changed traffic conditions on the Pacific Highway from next week to install bridge girders between Ourimbah and Lisarow.
The work is part of the state government’s $70 million upgrade of the Pacific Highway between Lisarow and Ourimbah to improve traffic flow and safety.
Work involves installing nine 33-metre concrete bridge girders as well as moving some traffic barriers as part of the project.
To minimise the impact to motorists, work will be carried out for three shifts from Thursday, July 20, to Saturday, July 23, between 6pm and 5am, weather permitting.
Work will also continue during standard work hours on weekdays from 7am to 6pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm, excluding public holidays.
Traffic control will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
During night work hours, traffic will be reduced to one lane on the Pacific Highway and motorists are advised to allow an additional 15 minutes travel time while traffic is stopped while bridge girders are lifted by cranes.
Motorists are advised to plan ahead, drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
