While the speed limit through Berry during the Australia Day period will remain unchanged, other areas of the Princes Highway will see their limits lifted to help holiday traffic.Holidaymakers heading south over the Australia Day weekend will get an easier run around the Princes Highway upgrade thanks to a boosted speed limit.
Work on the Princes Highway upgrade –theFoxground and Berry Bypass –will stop until January 27 “to minimise the impact on motorists travelling during the final weekend of the summer school holidays and for Australia Day,” said Kiama MP Gareth Ward.
The speed limit along thePrinces Highway between Toolijooa Road and just south of Andersons Lane will be increased to80km/h.
The existing 60km/h speed limit from Tindalls Lane to the 50 km/h zone north of Berry will remain in place, as will the 60km/h speed limit near Schofields Lane.
The 50km/h speed limitthrough Berry will also remain unchanged.
“Roadwork speed limits will be back in place from 7am on Wednesday 27th January, when work resumes on the $580 million project to upgrade the Princes Highway between Toolijooa Road and Andersons Lane,” Mr Ward said
Work has been suspended on the upgrades for every holiday weekend since Christmas 2014, in an effort to reduce traffic congestion around these busy times.
