The NSW Government have released the findings of a massive safety report into the Kings Highway today, reports ABC News.
The report recommends upgrades worth millions of dollars, which could be funded through the NSW black spots program.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro says road surfaces will be upgraded as well as improvements to signage and safety barriers.
He says they will also look at current speed limits and initiatives to address driver fatigue.

“The report recommends that 100km per hour speed limits on either side of Braidwood, where recent fatalities took place, be reduced to 80km per hour,” he said.
“It’s hoped this will occur by the middle of the year.”
38 people have died on Kings Highway since 2000, so it’s nice to see the road being looked at. Nobody likes going slower, particularly on a highway, but if it works it’ll be worth it right?
