WORK STARTED ON GILBRALTER RANGE GWYDIR HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENTS

Wednesday, 15 June 2016

 

WORK is underway along two kilometres of the Gwydir Highway at the Gibraltar Range, to improve drainage and road safety for motorists.

 

The NSW Government has allocated $1 million to the project to replace kerbing, which will reduce the impact of water along the road during heavy rain.

 

Local MP Adam Marshall urged motorists to keep in mind the changed traffic conditions that will be in place for four months on the Gibraltar Range section of the highway.

 

“This essential safety work not only provides much needed drainage, but also helps improve overall road safety in wet weather on this section of the range,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“I’m really pleased to see work start, given how dangerous this section of road has been for a very long time.”

 

For the safety of motorists and workers the speed limit will be reduced to 60km/hr.

 

Traffic will be reduced to one lane alternate flow using traffic lights during work hours.

 

Work will be carried out Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm and Saturday 8am to 1pm.

 

Motorists are asked to follow the direction of traffic controllers, keep to the reduced speed limits and follow traffic signs and lights when displayed.
