Improvements to Mid Western Highway near Blayney starting

Motorists travelling on the Mid Western Highway near Blayney will benefit from safer and more reliable driving conditions by early next year with rebuilding work starting next week.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said “The work will improve the alignment of the road and the road surface to ensure it is to the standard of a 100km/h highway.  The NSW Government allocated $7.5 million for the work on the two kilometre section from about 32 kilometres to 34 kilometres west of Bathurst.”

“The section of road was identified as a priority for improvements in the NSW Centre for Road Safety route safety review carried out in 2010.The new road will join existing 100 km/h standard sections providing a consistent standard of highway between Blayney and Bathurst. The work is part of Roads and Maritime’s commitment to improving road safety in western NSW,” Mr Toole said.

Motorists are advised of alternating traffic conditions and short delays while the work is carried out on weekdays between 7am and 4pm. Work is expected to start on Monday 30 September and continue until March next year.

Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while the work is carried out. Wet weather may change work dates and times.
Traffic control and reduced speed limits will be in place to ensure the safety of workers and road users.

Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow all signs.
