Improvement work restarts on Sturt Highway at Jeraly
20 January 2017
Member for Murray, Adrian Piccoli today confirmed road improvement work will restart this Monday 23 January to upgrade a three kilometre section of the Sturt Highway at Jeraly.
Mr Piccoli said the NSW Government has provided $2 million to improve the road surface and reduce the need for ongoing maintenance along the highway.
“Work involves rebuilding the road surface, shoulder widening, drainage improvements and line marking.
“This project was scheduled to start in September last year but was delayed due to wet weather.
“With work now ready to start again the Sturt Highway will be improved to provide a stronger, smoother road surface for the 1000 motorists traveling along this section of road daily.”
Major work will start on Monday 23 January and is expected to take three months to complete, weather permitting.
Mr Piccoli said work will be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm and Saturdays from 8am to 1pm. Changed traffic conditions, including a reduced speed limit, lane closures and traffic controllers will be in place during working hours for the safety of workers and motorists.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out,” Mr Piccoli concluded.
