It’s time to make a Plan B- because Bulli Pass closes again on Monday.
The closure of the road will also impact progress on the Grand Pacific Cycleway, with work to stop, to minimise traffic disruptions on Lawrence Hargrave Drive.
Another five million dollars will be spent as 500 meters of rock-fall fencing is installed down Bulli Pass and the slopes along the road are stabilised.
A spokesperson for the RMS says the safest and most efficient way to complete the work is to close the road.
“Bulli Pass will be closed from 9am Monday 28 August until 3pm on Friday 3 November. For the benefit of travellers, the Pass will open on the October long weekend at 3pm on Friday 29 September and close at 9am on Tuesday 3 October.”
Roads and Maritime Services will continue to work closely with contractors to reopen the Pass if required should major incidents occur on the M1.
“Work will again be carried out in day and night shifts and will be completed as quickly as possible to reopen the road to motorists,” she says. “Detour routes are expected to add between 15 to 30 minutes in travel time and motorists are asked to carefully plan their journeys.
“Detour routes will again be closely monitored as they were during the first closure and tow trucks and emergency patrols are on standby to clear incidents as quickly as possible to keep traffic moving.
“Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience during the upcoming closure.”
