Cessnock City Council is pleased to announce the opening of a new RV rest area off Allworth Street, Kurri Kurri, just in time for the festive season.

The region’s roads are expected to be busy over the Christmas and New Year period as the community welcome family and friends or head off on a well earned break.

Local residents are reminded fatigue is a one of the three biggest killers on NSW roads, in fact in the Cessnock Local Government area fatigue is a contributing factor in around 25% of casualty crashes.

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said it is a fantastic new facility.

“We invested $85, 000 in the new RV area which has 12 RV parking bays, 8 car parking spaces, street lighting, an RV dump point and is serviced by a sealed roadway”.

“It is very timely we open the facility ahead of Christmas and is an opportunity to remind everyone to take precautions if their plans for the holidays include travelling”, Cr Pynsent said.

Drivers are urged to Stop, Revive, Survive by taking advantage of the new facility, which is ideally located for traffic travelling on the nearby M1 Motorway and Hunter Expressway.
