Kings Highway closures mooted

By johnboy - 11 April 2013 44


The ABC reports that the NSW Government is planning to shut down the Kings Highway from tuesday to thursday for weeks in May to make Poo Corner safer after the April rockslide last year:

Work to help prevent landslides along the highway is expected to cause a major disruption to traffic.

The Government says it is flexible in when the work starts and will accept feedback on the dates.

But the closures are planned over five weeks from May, and will close the road around the Clyde Mountain from 7:30am on Tuesdays until 5:00pm on Thursdays.

The Government says it has considered other options but the location and work required make it impossible to continue letting traffic through.

We’re hearing whining from Eurobodalla but I think we’d all rather the work got done than not.

What’s Your opinion?

There’s a great dirt road between Bathurst and Goulburn. Try doing it on a wet day in a manual, rear wheel drive V8. It was an exciting few hours!

No dirt these days or perhaps you know something I don’t…?

So you can’t drive a 2wd car on gravel you can’t drive your 4wd on gravel with out it being in 4wd and you seem to have a problem with land rover defenders. Weekend worriers like you should stay at home

If you can direct me to lessons on driving on dirt roads, I’m happy to work on item 1. There are no dirt roads in Ireland but then again not many people taking driving lessons in Australia get experience on dirt roads either.
Item 2 – didn’t say can’t, said don’t. Why would I forgo extra grip? Most so-called AWD cars switch into 4wd when needed, so I’m just doing it manually cos the Troopy doesn’t do it automatically.
Item 3 – I have a problem with ANYONE pulling out in front of me, regardless of the make and model of vehicle they are driving. I expect a cyclist or motorbike wouldn’t have done it, hence the comment about the make and model – a aprticularly tough vehicle, so perhaps the driver felt bulletproof. I didn’t see the plates, but didn’t recognise the car as local, so I suspect they were ACT plates.
Item 4 – I’m driving on dirt roads in my neighbourhood, that I pay rates for. Perhaps it is the ACT-plated overconfident heroes who should stay home.

Here endeth the ranty lesson.
