Golden Highway upgrade at Elong Elong progressing well

29 May 2018

Motorists travelling along the Golden Highway at Elong Elong will soon have a safer and smoother section of road with a $620,000 road upgrade progressing well.

Member for Dubbo, Troy Grant said the NSW Government funded project would involve rebuilding a 1.5 kilometre section of the road about 50 kilometres east of Dubbo.

“The existing road surface was rough and required removal and replacement,” Mr Grant said.

“During this work, the opportunity will also be taken to clean out table drains next to the road to ensure rain and other surface water can effectively drain away from the road.

“Once the road has been rebuilt, it will be resealed and line marking will be carried out.

“Dubbo Regional Council is carrying out the work on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services on weekdays and Saturdays between 7am and 6pm, weather permitting, and is expected to take five weeks to complete.

“Changed traffic conditions will be in place during work, including single lane closures closest to where work is taking place.

“Motorists should plan their trip, allow extra travelling time and follow the direction of traffic control and all signs, including a reduced speed of 40 km/h.

“Road and Maritime thanks the community for their patience during this important upgrade work.”
