Maintenance continues on M4 Western Motorway from Homebush to Concord
20 January 2014
Motorists are reminded of changed traffic conditions for major maintenance work to improve the M4 Western Motorway between the Homebush Bay Drive ramps at Homebush and the Parramatta Road exit at Concord.
“The M4 Western Motorway carries around 100,000 vehicles per day and essential maintenance is being carried out to provide a stronger, more durable road surface and improve road safety,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“The project which started in August last year involves replacing the asphalt surface, in-road vehicle sensors on the motorway and line marking.
“Work is expected to continue until late February, weather permitting.
“Full closures of eastbound lanes will be required from Silverwater Road to Parramatta Road on Friday 31 January from 11pm to 5am, and Saturday 1 February and 11pm to 7am.
“Westbound lanes will be closed from Parramatta Road to Homebush Bay Drive on ramp on Saturday 8 and Friday 14 February from midnight to 8am, weather permitting.
“In case of wet weather, shifts will be carried out on Friday 7 and Saturday 15 February.
“Early work to prepare for the resurfacing has started and will be carried out from Sundays to Thursdays between 9pm and 5am with partial lane closures in place to create a safe work space.
“Electronic message signs will be in place on roads and ramps to give motorists advance notice of closures and detour routes.
“Reduced speed limits will also be in place to ensure safety while asphalt is being replaced. Delays of between 15 and 30 minutes are expected and motorists should allow extra travel time.
“Every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents and motorists,” the spokesperson said.
