Golden Highway Upgrades – Mudies Creek and Whittingham

Roads and Maritime Services is planning to upgrade the Golden Highway between Mudies Creek at Whittingham and Putty Road at Mount Thorley to improve safety, freight efficiency and flood immunity.

The proposed upgrades are part of a package of work being delivered on the Golden Highway, between Whittingham and Dubbo. The NSW Government is providing $109 million funding, with an additional $24 million funding from the Australian Government, for the package of work.

The Whittingham and Mudies Creek proposal involves building a new road crossing at Mudies Creek to withstand a one in 100 year flood. A new 30 metre long bridge will be built over Mudies Creek and would be three metres higher than the current road level to improve travel reliability on the Golden Highway during flood events.

A six kilometre section of the highway between Whittingham and Mount Thorley will be upgraded. Improvements include providing a smoother road surface, wider road shoulders, five metre clear zones, safety barriers, and overtaking lanes in both directions to improve safety and traffic flow.

Stakeholders and the community are invited to comment on the concept designs for the upgrades by Wednesday 9 May 2018 by:

Barrington Bridge

The NSW Government is planning to build a new bridge over the Barrington River at Barrington to improve safety and reliability for motorists including freight.

Construction of a new bridge would reduce long term maintenance costs, improve road freight productivity, improve road safety for motorists using the approach roads and bridge and ensure the traffic needs of the community in the Barrington, Gloucester and surrounding areas are met.

A review of environmental factors has been carried out for the new bridge to assess the potential environmental and social impacts of the proposal and identify activities to manage and mitigate these impacts. The environmental assessment was prepared in consultation with a range of key stakeholders and technical specialists.

Roads and Maritime Services is inviting community feedback on the review of environmental factors for the construction of the new bridge.

How can you give feedback?

Stakeholders and the community are invited to comment on the review of environmental factors for the project by 5pm on Monday 23 April 2018 by:

The review of environmental factors can be viewed online by visiting rms.work/barrington.

Alternatively a hard copy of the document can be viewed by visiting the Gloucester office of Mid Coast Council located at 89 King Street, Gloucester between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday. Copies will also be available for viewing at Gloucester Library located at 27 Denison Street, Gloucester and the Barrington Post Office and General Store located at 12 -16 Argyle Street Barrington.
