The delivery of the northbound overtaking lane at Telescope, about 15 kilometres north of Parkes 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 border to the Queensland border.

Work on a northbound overtaking lane on the Newell Highway at Telescope, near Parkes, was completed on Friday 17 April 2020.

The overtaking lane extends for approximately 1.5 kilometres along the Newell Highway, starting near Coobang Road.
