Motorists will soon benefit from improved safety on the Castlereagh Highway at Dunedoo with upgrade work under way.
Member for Barwon, Kevin Humphries said work started today to widen a one kilometre stretch of the highway to provide road shoulders, improve drainage and strengthen the road surface.
“The NSW Government provided $550,000 for the work which also aims to reduce ongoing maintenance costs,” Mr Humphries said.
“This is an example of Roads and Maritime Services upgrading roads to improve safety in regional NSW.
“Work will be carried out by Roads and Maritime on weekdays from 7am to 5pm and is expected to be completed by the end of December,” Mr Humphries said.
Motorists are advised changed conditions will be in place while the work is carried out
ncluding lane closures, speed reductions and short delays.
Traffic controllers will be in place to ensure safety for workers and motorists. Wet weather may change work dates and times.
Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow all signs.
