Electronic Message Sign To Improve Travel Information At Windsor Road In Baulkham Hills

Roads Minister Duncan Gay and Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott today announced work is progressing on the installation of a new electronic message sign on Windsor Road at Baulkham Hills.

“The aim of the sign is to provide motorists with up to date traffic information on vehicle breakdowns, crashes and upcoming road work,” Mr Gay said.

“Work started last month to install the electronic message sign southbound between Cook and Charles Streets after community consultation was carried out on the proposal in February,” he said.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) started work last month to install the support structure and the footing for the sign.

Mr Elliott said the message board is expected to be put up early next month.

“RMS is also carrying out excavation work to secure power and telecommunications utilities for the sign,” Mr Elliott said.

“Trees will be also be trimmed to ensure the sign is clearly visible to motorists,” Mr Elliott said.

“The sign is expected to be installed by mid-July and traffic monitoring will be carried out for several months after it becomes operational.

“RMS thanks motorists for their patience while work is carried out,” Mr Elliott said.
