$40,000 for rest area

The Daily Examiner - - NEWS -

MO­TORISTS trav­el­ling be­tween Grafton and Casino will soon have more of an in­cen­tive to “stop, re­vive, sur­vive” on the Sum­mer­land Way.

Clarence Na­tion­als MP Chris Gu­lap­tis said es­sen­tial work was be­ing car­ried out from to­day at Brae­mar Park Rest Area to im­prove ac­cess for all road users.

“I’m pleased to an­nounce the NSW Gov­ern­ment has pro­vided $40,000 to im­prove the en­trance to Brae­mar Park Rest Area,” he said.

“The aim of this work is to en­cour­age more peo­ple to stop and take more reg­u­lar rest breaks to al­le­vi­ate fa­tigue, which is one of the main killers on the road.”

Work will be car­ried out on week­days from Oc­to­ber 30 be­tween 7am and 4pm and take about three weeks, weather per­mit­ting.

“For the safety of work­ers and road users Brae­mar Park Rest Area will be closed on Mon­day and Tues­day, Novem­ber 13 and 14, dur­ing work hours,” Mr Gu­lap­tis said.

“Dur­ing this time driv­ers are en­cour­aged to use the rest area avail­able 20 min­utes to the north at Casino and 20 min­utes south at Whiporie.”
