Forty Bends Road, South Bowenfels 7 of 7

The road rejoins the highway
Here we are back at the highway and the end of this road.

I found the following on the Roads and Maritime website

RMS IS PROPOSING TO CONSTRUCT A THREE LANE UPGRADE AT FORTY BENDS

Realigning the highway at Forty Bends would improve safety and reliability of travel and reduce the likelihood of crashes and potential road closures in winter months due to the formation of black ice. Other safety benefits would include reduced grades and smoother curves.

It seems a few more of the old bends are going to disappear.

  2. It's a shame the road will lose its character, but I'm sure the benefits are more important! You'll just have to search even harder for those hidden gems!!
