Monaro Highway and Kosciuszko Road safety improvements
The NSW Government provided $20 million to build new overtaking lanes and improve safety on Monaro Highway and Kosciuszko Road.
Monaro Highway and Kosciuszko Road form part of the key freight, commuter and recreational route between the Snowy Mountains region and the ACT through to Sydney and surrounds. This is the key route used by motorists travelling to the NSW snow fields.
The focus of the $20 million improvements was on the Monaro Highway between the ACT border and Cooma and Kosciuszko Road from south of Cooma to Jindabyne via Berridale.
The upgrade program included:
- new westbound lane on Kosciuszko Road from Barry Way to Alpine Way
- new southbound overtaking lane on the Monaro Highway south of Michelago
- new westbound overtaking lane on Kosciuszko Road at Coolringdon
- road safety treatments including widened shoulders, roadside safety barrier, and audio-tactile line marking at the following locations:
- the intersection of Poveys Road and the Monaro Highway at Colinton
- the intersection of Newton Street, leading onto Bumbalong road, and the Monaro Highway at Colinton
- the extension of guardrail at key locations along the Highway between the ACT and Cooma
- new and extended safety barrier at Williamsdale, Bredbo and Bredbo North.
All of the safety improvements were completed and opened to traffic in time for the 2019 snow season.
