Katrina announces start of Lachlan Valley Way roadworks
The Nationals Member for Burrinjuck, Katrina Hodgkinson, said today that work to improve safety for road users by widening and repairing sections of the Lachlan Valley Way, about 12km south of Boorowa, will start this week.
“The NSW Government contributed $800,000 for this work which aims to improve travel on the highway for all road users,” Katrina said. “Roads and Maritime Services will carry out widening of a 1.2 km section of the highway located near the Castlesteads property.
“Repairs to the highway should be completed in November, weather permitting.
“Work also starts later this month to widen a 1.3 km section of the highway 3km south of the Woolpack Road intersection, about 24 km north of Boorowa.
“The NSW Government provided $1 million in this year’s State Budget to widen these two sections, upgrade drains and repair the road surface.
“The highway upgrade work is an important part of the Roads and Maritime Services program to improve safety and maintain roads in regional NSW.”
Katrina said RMS is advising motorists that changed conditions, including lane closures, will be in place for work south of Boorowa on weekdays from 7am to 5pm until mid-November, with minor delays to be expected.
Traffic control and reduced speed limits will be in place to ensure the safety of workers and road users.
Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow all signs.

“I recognize the impact that these road works will have on locals and visitors and I thank them for their patience while the widening is underway,” Katrina said.
“Once the work is completed the improvement in the road surface will be worth the small inconvenience experienced during construction.
