Clarence Town Road to get an upgrade at Brookfield

20 May  2014

George Souris, M.P., Member for Upper Hunter, is pleased to announce that motorists travelling between Clarence Town and Dungog can look forward to a safer journey with a $1.6 million project to upgrade Clarence Town Road at Brookfield to start on Monday 2 June, weather permitting.

Mr. Souris said the project is part of the NSW Government’s Hunter Infrastructure and Investment Fund.

“This is the seventh project to be carried out as part of the broader upgrade of Clarence Town Road to increase safety, provide a better road surface for motorists and reduce ongoing maintenance costs,” Mr. Souris  said.

“Work will be carried out on a two kilometre section of road from 370 metres north of Wallarobba Brookfield Road to 375 metres north of Glen William Road.

“Wider lanes and shoulders will be provided and some minor alignment and drainage issues will be addressed.”

“Work will be carried out by Dungog Shire Council on weekdays between 7.30am and 5.30pm and is expected to be completed by September, weather permitting.

“One lane will be closed while work is under way with reduced speed limits in place during work hours.

“Motorists are asked to follow all signs and allow extra travel time.

“This project is part of Roads and Maritime’s commitment to ensuring safety on NSW roads,” Mr. Souris said.

“For the latest traffic information, visit www.livetraffic.com, download Live Traffic App or call the Transport Management Centre on 132 701,” Mr. Souris concluded.
