M2 Nightworks

The Hills M2 Motorway will be carrying out work in June to install frames for a new advertising sign on the eastern side of the Barclay Road Bridge, North Rocks.

 Work will be carried out at night to minimise disruption to motorists and ensure the safety of workers. The work will be carried out four week nights a week, between 9pm to 5am from 2 June to 19 June 2014, weather permitting.

The noise associated with the installation of the frames will be a one-off event. Changes to the advertising on the sign in the future will not generate noise.

 Machinery and equipment for this night work may include a lighting tower, an elevated
work platform, a mobile crane, a petrol generator, impact or diamond core drills, hand tools, light vehicles and illuminated traffic and directional signage.

 You may experience increased noise as a result of this work. Every effort will be made to minimise the impacts on the local community, including scheduling the noisiest work where possible before midnight and where possible using non-tonal reversing alarms,
which make a “quacking” sound instead of a “beeping” sound.

There will be no disruption to M2 westbound traffic during this work. At least one lane of the M2 eastbound carriageway will remain open and the speed limit in the work area will be reduced to 40Km/h. There will be no traffic changes on Barclay  Road. Motorists are reminded to drive safely and follow the signs.

Traffic changes to M2 Barclay Road Interchange bus station will be in place while the work is carried out. Buses will be running as usual.
