New England Highway improvement project between Aberdeen and Willow Tree

The NSW Government is funding this $25 million program of work to improve safety and upgrade sections of the New England Highway between Aberdeen and Willow Tree.

Updates and announcements

The NSW Government is providing $25 million for a four year program of work including $1 million in the 2015/16 financial year to start planning and delivering the program.

Roads and Maritime Services will be carrying out maintenance work on the New England Highway north of Haydons Lane in May and June 2016 as part of the first package of work. This work will be carried out near Blandford and involves repairing the road surface on the New England Highway for approximately 400 metres between Haydon’s Lane and White Street.


Funding has been provided to repair and widen sections of the New England Highway between Aberdeen and Willow Tree.

The projects will improve safety, travel times and freight efficiency while reducing maintenance costs along this section of the highway.

The work will be delivered progressively until 2019.
