Chinamans Road

The delivery of a new northbound overtaking lane, about six kilometres north of Tocumwal, is now complete.

Project information

Transport for NSW has partnered with BMD and AECOM to form the Newell Highway Program Alliance.

The strategic partnership will deliver about 30 additional overtaking lanes in an estimated four years rather than the likely eight years it would take to fund and deliver this work using traditional procurement methods.

This innovative mode of delivery will result in a minimum of 45 kilometres of new overtaking lanes to improve safety, reduce travel times, allow more accurate travel planning and improve freight productivity.

The new overtaking lanes are expected to provide around 25 minutes of travel time savings along the length of the Newell Highway from the Victorian to the Queensland border.

Work on a northbound overtaking lane near Chinamans Road, about six kilometres north of Tocumwal, was completed on Tuesday 24 November 2020.

The overtaking lane extends for about 1.5 kilometres along the Newell Highway, south of Chinamans Road.
