Katrina announces start of improvements on Olympic Highway’s Cootamundra Bypass

The Nationals Member for Burrinjuck, Katrina Hodgkinson, today announced that work to resurface the intersection of Temora and Hovell Streets on the Cootamundra bypass will begin on Monday 15 April.

“The NSW Government is investing $800,000 in Cootamundra to improve the road infrastructure along this section of the heavy vehicle bypass,” Katrina said.
Local residents have already benefited from the installation of flashing lights at several schools, which I inspected while I was in Cootamundra recently.

“These road works will provide motorists with a smoother road and also reduce future maintenance costs.”

Katrina said the work will be carried out from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and will take place from the intersection along Temora Street up to Sutton Street. Changes will also be made to line marking to provide parking on the western side of the road.

“Traffic will be reduced to one lane during work hours so motorists may experience some minor delays,” Katrina said.

“Access to side streets may also be temporarily closed with detours in force and vehicle access to some properties along the work site will unfortunately have to be restricted for safety reasons at certain times during the work.

“I recognize the impact that these road works will have on Cootamundra’s residents and I thank them for their patience while the resurfacing is underway.

“Once the work is completed the improvement in the road surface will be worth the small inconvenience experienced during construction.

“I suggest that Cootamundra residents plan their local trips to use an alternate route, where at all possible, to avoid any inconvenience.

“The project is expected to be completed by the end of April, weather permitting,” Katrina said.
