Night work starts on Mitchell Highway in Bathurst

23 November 2015

Road users are soon to benefit from an upgrade to the Mitchell Highway road surface between Bradwardine and Cardinia Avenue in Bathurst.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the $80,000 NSW Government funded project would provide a safer, stronger and longer lasting road for motorists.

“The project involves asphalting and line marking to produce a smoother road surface and reduce noise levels for local residents and businesses,” Mr Toole said.

“The project, which reflects Roads and Maritime Services commitment to providing quality roads for western NSW, would also improve safety for all road users and reduce future maintenance costs.”

“Night work will be carried out on Monday 23 November from 7pm to 6am to minimise impacts on motorists.”

“Roads and Maritime will make every effort to reduce noise from the work, including using oscillating rollers to reduce vibration, completing the noisiest work earlier in the evening and reducing vehicle movement.”

There will be changed traffic conditions including reduced speed limits and lane closures in place while work is completed for the safety of workers and motorists.

Motorists should plan their trip, allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic control.

Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while the important road improvement work is carried out.
