Lake Macquarie residents will benefit from work started to install a noise wall on the M1 Pacific Motorway northbound near Currans Road.
A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the NSW Government is funding the $5.5 million noise reduction project to help reduce traffic noise for residents.
"The NSW Government views road traffic noise as an important issue and is committed to improving the daily lives of residents living near arterial infrastructure such as the M1 Pacific Motorway,” the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson said Transport for NSW will carry out the work, which includes survey, vegetation clearing and building a 408-metre noise wall on the M1 Pacific Motorway northbound near Currans Road.
“Work will be carried out from 7pm to 3am from Sunday to Thursday and 6.30am to 3.30pm weekdays and is expected to be complete by September, weather permitting,” the spokesperson said.
“Residents will be advised in advance if any work needs to be carried out outside these times.
“There will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe.
“A shoulder closure and 80km/h speed limit reduction will be implemented, with safety barriers installed until the work is completed.
“Additionally, lane closures and a 40km/h speed limit will be in place at some stages during work hours and may affect travel times. Please keep to speed limits and follow the direction of signs.”
