The Roads and Maritime Service will install traffic survey cameras today around the Adamstown railway crossing.

The survey equipment will examine traffic flow until Thursday and will assess the potential for motorists to take alternate routes during gate closures.

Electronic message signs could be installed around the Adamstown railway
crossing to warn motorists of lengthy delays and advise them to take
alternate routes.

Newcastle MP Tim Owen says the information collected will be used to help find a long-term solution to the congestion.

“We’ll get a sense I think that four to five hours or whatever it might be or at these particular times, this is where it is quite chaotic.”
