Works to fix Bulli Pass now complete
TRANSPORT for NSW has repaired damage to the Bulli Pass after an "out of control" truck crashed back in March.
The truck left the road and crashed before catching fire on March 26 and after a detailed investigation, NSW Police inspected six trucks and five trailers belonging to the company involved.
Police issued the company with three minor defect notices for a minor air leak, minor brake imbalance and a seatbelt which was slow to retract.
At the time, Roads and Maritime Services Director of Compliance Roger Weeks said while the inspection had only revealed minor defects, RMS would continue to conduct compliance operations to ensure "no one is cutting corners" when it came to the safety of heavy vehicles.
Transport NSW worked closely with the NSW Police investigation and identified what needed to be repaired.
A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the work was completed last month and included maintenance repairs to the pavement and the concrete safety barrier to fix damage caused by the crash.
The spokesperson said the NSW Government had allocated $50,000 in under the Safer Roads Program to develop plans to further improve safety on Bulli Pass.
"Investigations and planning for potential solutions including improving the road shoulder on a curve, installing wider centre lines and installing audio tactile line marking will be carried out during this financial year," the spokesperson said.
