Bruxner Highway safety improvements kick off at Tatham Road

Published

Motorists on the Bruxner Highway will benefit from work starting on Monday to improve safety at the highway’s intersection with Tatham Road, south of Lismore.

Transport for NSW North Region Director, Anna Zycki, said the NSW Government is investing $1.4 million from the Safer Roads Program to increase safety at this intersection, which is used by about 9000 vehicles each day.

“Transport for NSW has engaged Lismore City Council to carry out this essential upgrade, with work starting on Monday 4 December,” Ms Zycki said.

“This includes widening the highway to install a new eastbound right turn lane from the Bruxner Highway into Tatham Road and installing new safety barriers along the highway. 

“To facilitate this upgrade, the existing bus shelter at this location will be relocated temporarily and reinstalled once work is complete in February next year, weather permitting.” 

Motorists are advised that work will be carried out from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and from 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.

Single lane closures and a 40km/h speed limit will be in place during work hours which may affect travel times. 

Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience while this upgrade work is being carried out.
