$1.9 MILLION NEW ENGLAND HIGHWAY UPGRADE WORKS NEAR URALLA

Monday, 19 September 2016

THE State Government is investing another $1.9 million for essential maintenance work on the New England Highway to provide a stronger, longer lasting and safer road, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced today.

Mr Marshall said the work would be carried out on a three-kilometre section of the New England Highway, starting about 500 metres north of Uralla and involved rebuilding the existing road surface.

“This work is on the back of almost $2 million worth of improvements on the same stretch of highway, south of Armidale, near the notorious Platform Road turnoff,” Mr Marshall said.

“The 22-kilomters stretch between Uralla and Armidale is one of the busiest sections of the New England Highway and it’s important that the road surface continue to be improved to ensure safety for motorists”

Mr Marshall said work was scheduled to start today and last for 10 weeks, weather permitting, between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday. Saturday work will only be carried out when required.

“Traffic will be reduced to one lane alternate flow during work hours with traffic management and reduced speed limits in place for the safety of workers and all road users,” he said.

“Road safety is a core focus for the government, all roads users in NSW should be able to arrive safely at their destinations.

“This work is part of that commitment and every effort will be made to minimise impact on local motorists.”

Up to date information, including any changes to work dates will be displayed on electronic message signs along the roads and highway.

Mr Marshall thanked the community for its patience as this important work is carried out.
