Maintenance work to continue along Great Western Highway in Werrington
Motorists travelling along the Great Western Highway in Werrington will soon benefit from a major maintenance project continuing this week to improve the highway surface.
"The NSW Government provided $835,000 to upgrade both sides of the Great Western Highway between Gipps and O'Connell streets at Werrington," said Mrs Tanya Davies, MP for Mulgoa.
Night works will be carried out from Sunday to Friday for one month commencing Thursday 26 September from 8pm to 5am, weather permitting. The works aim to provide a more durable road surface and reduce future maintenance costs.
“Local residents and business operators have been advised directly of the planned road works and every effort will be made to reduce noise and traffic impacts along the road during the works,” Tanya Davies said.
Motorists can expect partial lane closures while the resurfacing and line marking is carried out to ensure a safe work space.
Electronic signs and traffic controllers will in place to direct traffic and help residents access their properties.
"Motorists are advised to drive with caution, obey all signs, including reduced speed limits and allow extra travel time," Tanya Davies said.
