National Park roadworks to create delays

Roads and Maritime Services crews will begin safety upgrades on Farnell Avenue and Audley Road in the Royal National Park next week.

Work on the $470,000 project will begin on Monday and is expected to take a month.

Work will be carried out from 10am-3pm on weekdays with some 8pm-5am work on Sunday to Friday (weather permitting).

Partial road closures will be in place and delays are expected.

The work will include the installation of one-metre wide road shoulders, non-skid horizontal lines to warn drivers on approach to curves, curve warning signs, speed advisory signs and new safety barriers.

There were five head-on crashes and four off-road crashes on these roads in the five years up to December 2011, which resulted in one death.
