Electronic traffic sign will be installed on Hume Highway

Macarthur motorists will soon have a new way to see real time information about travel conditions.

A new electronic message sign will be installed on the Hume Motorway at Glenfield.

A Roads and Maritime Services spokesman said the sign would be installed as part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point program, which aims to reduce traffic delays and ease congestion on Sydney roads.

“More than 13,000 motorists travel southbound on the Hume Motorway through Glenfield every day,” the spokesman said.

“The electronic message sign will be installed before the Brooks Road exit and will provide southbound road users with advance warning of incidents on the Hume Motorway, Campbelltown Road, Narellan Road and Camden Bypass.”

The work is not expected to impact road users.

“Work to install the sign will take place in two stages with the first stage expected to take six nights from 8pm to 5am between Monday, September 26 and Friday, October 14, weather permitting,” the spokesman said.

“The second stage will take six night shifts between Monday, November 7 and Friday, December 2, weather permitting.”
