Motorists using the M1 Princes Motorway will soon benefit from the installation of four kilometres of safety barriers installed between Mount Keira and Masters roads.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the barriers will improve safety for motorists by separating traffic from the dense median, and help to maintain the vegetation and pine trees along this stretch.

“This stretch of road has a poor crash history, with 16 crashes recorded in the five years to July 2021.

Of these, there was one fatality and a further six serious injuries,” the spokesperson said.
