Final work completed for $1.4 million Sturt Highway upgrade at Balranald

Community members and visitors travelling in Balranald are now benefiting from a $1.4 million project to improve the road surface on the Sturt Highway, known locally as Market Street.

Member for Murray-Darling, John Williams, said the NSW Government carried out road maintenance and resurfacing work between McCabe and River streets following on from earlier road improvement work completed in February at the other end of the town’s main road.

“The improvements to Market Street were carried out following the first stage of the $2.8 million upgrade to the shopping district of Market Street between River and Cally Streets, earlier this year.“Work completed this month involved removing a deep layer of the road surface and replacing it to improve the journey and safety for all road users.

“The detour for wide loads which was in place during work has now been lifted and the road is open to all traffic.

“I would like to thank the community for their patience during the important road maintenance upgrade which was completed on time and to budget,” John Williams said.
