Roads Minister brings forward M4 works after deadly crash

The Roads Minister has requested plans for the M4 motorway be brought forward after a deadly car crash on Thursday.

A 36-year-old tradie was killed in the 11 vehicle pile-up at the Church St exit at Mays Hill.

The location is a notorious black spot, where motorists regularly stop dead in the 80km/h zone, attempting to push in ahead of traffic and avoid the toll.

Work is scheduled for October this year to widen the off-ramp at Church St, extend the left turn lane and add an extra right turn lane.

Roads Minister Andrew Constance tells Ben Fordham the work will have to be brought forward.

“I have asked the secretary of the department to see what can be done in the short term.

“Drivers also have to be very mindful that if you are going to exit a motorway you have to make sure you do it safely.”
