Well, only 50 minutes from Gordon to Woy Woy today. As it was before.
They opened Woy Woy road in one direction and it apparently eased a pressure on evening commuters. But there are no evidences of any work in progress at Bulls hill, everything I could notice was a barricade and 25 km/h signs.
Another question is why did it open it in one direction only — while there is only one line available it still could be reversible, all they need is bring a pair of temporary radio controlled traffic lights and put them on the top and on the bottom of the hill — they do it all the time around roadwork sites anyway! In peak hour the whole thing could be one-directional, but there is no point of leaving it like this permanently — the traffic there has always been far from heavy and a couple of minutes wait in front of light would be much better than 25 minutes «drive» from Tascot to West Gosford.
Did they just never consider this option or there was another reason?
