Tow trucks will be put in place along detour routes to ensure incidents are cleared quickly during the closure of Bulli Pass, and traffic lights will be adjusted, in a bid to ease traffic congestion caused by the impending two-month closure of Bulli Pass.
The RMS has issued a statement saying despite a community consultation process, Bulli Pass will close for two months, starting Tuesday October 4, however steps will be taken to ensure a sustainable traffic flow.
They say no routine maintenance will be carried out on detour routes during the closure to help reduce the impact on travel times.
The RMS has thanked the community for providing feedback, with a spokesman saying it’s the option they’ll take to make-safe the area while they spend $5.5 million dollars installing rock-fall prevention fencing.
“Roads and Maritime Services has considered all feedback to finalise the traffic emergency management plans to help minimise the impact of this first major Bulli Pass closure.
“The first stage will involve work carried out on the highest risk sections, while a second closure is planned from late April next year to complete the work.”
The Pass will be opened between 3pm on Friday October 28 and 9am Monday October 31 for the arrival of the Royal Caribbean Cruise ship.
It will also be opened at 3pm on Friday November 4 until Monday November 7 for the Sydney to the Gong Bike Ride.
The RMS says this first stage of the work will be carried out 20 hours a day, seven days a week, to ensure work is carried out as efficiently and safely as possible.
Motorists are being advised to allow extra travel time and to use public transport where possible.
