The upgrades come as part of the NSW Government’s Safer Roads program.
Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey, said the $1.6 million improvement project would build upon safety measures at other locations.
“The work will involve installing an extra rail below the existing guardrail near Mount Seaview and is designed to stop bikers involved in an accident from sliding into a crash barrier’s steel posts,” Mrs. Pavey said.
Mrs. Pavey said more rails were expected to be installed at other locations along the Oxley Highway later this year.
“Other safety improvements will also be carried out to extend guardrail in some areas, along with improvements to signs,” Mrs. Pavey said.
The upgrades come after consultation with key motorcycle groups.
Work is underway near Mount Seaview and is expected to be completed by 30 June 2021, weather permitting.
