Updates and announcements

April 2016

Roads and Maritime Services reminds motorists there are changed traffic conditions in place for motorists entering and exiting the retail precinct on the Great Western Highway opposite McDonalds in Kelso.

The switch of westbound traffic along the highway just before Easter to two new traffic lanes and the demolition of the remainder of the Boyd Creek Bridge has resulted in changed traffic conditions for motorists accessing the retail centre.

Road users travelling from Bathurst, enter the precinct immediately after the bridge.

Road users travelling from Sydney enter the site at the traffic lights.

All traffic now exits the site from the temporary driveway on the Bathurst side of the centre carpark to merge with traffic at the traffic lights.

There is no right turn to Bathurst.

Motorists should allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic control and all signs.

Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience during the remainder of the Kelso upgrade.

Project background

The 2.4 kilometre project extends from just west of Stockland Drive intersection to just east of Ashworth Drive near the Gold Panner Motor Inn. The project will improve road safety by widening the highway to four lanes, improving intersections and separating opposing directions of traffic.
