NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is advising motorists to take care near Armidale’s northern New England Highway roundabout as important road surface upgrade works are being undertaken from today.
Mr Marshall said work involved removing the existing road surface and replacing it with asphalt to improve safety and reduce future maintenance costs.
For the benefit of motorists, work will be carried out from Monday, 30 January, to Thursday, 2 February, between 6pm and 6am, weather permitting,
“For the safety of workers and motorists, temporary lane closures and a reduced speed limit on the New England Highway will be in place,” Mr Marshall said.
“Road users must follow the direction of traffic control, signs and reduced speed limits.
Motorists may experience delays of up to five minutes and should allow extra travel time for their journeys.”
Up to date information, including any changes to work dates will be displayed on electronic message signs along nearby local roads and the highway.
Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while this important work is carried out.
