The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - AVA BENNY- MOR­RI­SON

IT is go­ing to be a slow crawl home for mo­torists re­turn­ing from their hol­i­days to­day.

Driv­ers are be­ing urged to avoid trav­el­ling through the ex­pected grid­lock hot spots.

“In terms of traf­fic com­ing back to­wards Syd­ney, I would ad­vise to al­low plenty of time,” a Trans­port Man­age­ment Cen­tre spokesman said. “Par­tic­u­larly on the M1 through the Cen­tral Coast head­ing to­wards Syd­ney, and the Great Western Hwy from the Blue Moun­tains head­ing to­wards Syd­ney.”

At least 10 peo­ple have been killed on NSW roads since the school hol­i­days be­gan two weeks ago, with the ma­jor­ity of crashes on coun­try roads.

“School hol­i­days end in NSW this week­end and we are aware that some fam­i­lies will be head­ing home to­day,” Traf­fic and High­way Pa­trol Com­mand’s Act­ing As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Julie Mid­dle­miss (pic­tured) said.

“Driv­ers should be pa­tient and ac­cept that there will be de­lays in and out of Syd­ney.”
