Early Mount Ousley rest area works to begin


Preliminary works to start in May with major works slated for August. Finish date predicted to be mid-2017

 

Work will begin on the Mount Ousley heavy vehicle rest area in New South Wales at the end of the month, with the updated location to include new facilities, parking, and safer access.

A result of joint funding from the state and federal governments, the $8.1m northbound project is located close to the intersection of the M1 Princes Motorway and Clive Bissell Drive and is scheduled to be completed by mid-2017.

"As well as providing 10 parking spaces for heavy vehicles, the area will also include new toilets, rubbish bins and undercover picnic tables," parliamentary secretary to the premier for the Illawarra and South Coast Gareth Ward says, who announced the news alongside the NSW Roads and Maritime Services.

"Early work will be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 5pm from Monday May 30 and include site preparation and vegetation clearing ahead of major work," he says.

"A temporary northbound heavy vehicle rest area will be open from Friday, May 27 at the former toll gate site at Waterfall until work is completed on the new facility at Mount Ousley."

Other initial works will be taking place between 9am and 3pm on May 26, which will mean the northbound lane of the M1 Princes Motorway will be closed.

Major work is expected to start in August.
