MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has advised motorists of changed traffic conditions from this week on the Gwydir Highway for road resealing to be carried out at Glen Innes.
Work will involve resealing the highway at two locations including a 200 metre section of road between Grey Street and the New England Highway and a 200 metre section of road between Derby Street and Coronation Avenue.
Mr Marshall said the works would repair surface damage that had occurred on the popular route.
“As a major truck thoroughfare between Inverell and Armidale, these two intersections have copped the brunt of heavy vehicles,” Mr Marshall said.
“The Grey Street intersection in particular has felt the impact of thousands of trucks turning from the New England to the Gwydir Highway.
“This one-day resealing work will repair damage for some 400 metres, making the drive through town smoother for all.”
Mr Marshall said to minimise impact to motorists, work would be carried out between 10am and 2pm tomorrow, Tuesday, 6 March.
“These works are contingent upon the weather, and if it cannot be completed in one day, works will continue on the Wednesday,” he concluded.
Motorists may experience delays of up to 10 minutes. Traffic control and a reduced speed limit will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
Mr Marshall and Roads and Maritime Services thank motorists for their patience during this time.
