Bulli Pass will reopen, temporarily, on Friday afternoon to assist with traffic flow between Sydney and Wollongong this October long weekend.
The Princes Highway thoroughfare has been closed since August 28 for the continuation of work to install rockfall protection safety barriers, improve the safety ramp and carry out slope stabilisation on the Pass.
The Pass will open in both directions – with a reduced speed limit of 40km/h in place – at 3pm on Friday, but will close again at 9am on Tuesday.
The latest stage of work, to install about 500 metres of rock fall protection fencing, is on track for completion by November 3.
The Pass was closed last year for stage one of a $5 million project to install 1.1km of fencing from the M1 Princes Motorway to the hairpin bend.
Once installed, the entire structure will be the longest fence of its kind in Australia.
Meanwhile, the NSW Transport Management Centre has warned motorists to expect delays on a number of Illawarra and South Coast roads this weekend.
Traffic is typically heavy on the M1 Princes Motorway and Princes Highway in Albion Park Rail, on the Princes Highway in Berry, Nowra, Milton and Ulladulla; as well as the Kings and Princes highways at Batemans Bay.
