Rudd continues boom gate investment


Work to begin on another two high-risk level crossings in NSW as part of $150 million program

Work will soon begin on the installation of new boom gates and safety measures at high-risk rail crossings in NSW as part of a $42.7 million investment in the State.

Work is expected to begin within two weeks on installing l;ights and boom gates at Denman on Kenilworth Street and Public Road.

The money comes from the Rudd Government’s $150 million Boom Gates for Rail Crossing Program, which will be responsible for upgrading safety around 55 high-risk level crossings throughout NSW.

"Already boom gates and other safety measures have been installed at some eight level crossings across the State," Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Anthony Albanese says.

"This investment will not only improve road safety but also support local jobs and local businesses during the current global recession."

The multi-million dollar program will fund boom gates and other safety measures at 292 level crossings nationwide.
