Project information

Transport for NSW has engaged Port Stephens Council to carry out road rebuilding on Cabbage Tree Road at Williamtown.

The site compound will be established from Wednesday 27 May with work starting on 1 June. We will be working between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Saturday and expect to complete the work in three weeks, weather permitting. We will let you know in advance if we need to do any work outside these times.

Detours for westbound motorists will be in place 24 hours a day from Monday 1 June to Monday 15 June. The road will be open to traffic on Sunday 7 June and Monday 8 June, over the long weekend.

Westbound motorists will be detoured via either Richardson Road towards Raymond Terrace or Nelson Bay Road toward Newcastle. We have included a map to show the alternate routes.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead as the detour is expected to add up to 25 kilometres to journeys, which is about 20 minutes travel time. Access will be maintained for residents and emergency services.

Lane closures and a stop/slow traffic arrangement will be in place during work hours from Tuesday 16 June for one week.
