Final seal applied to Silverton Road


A final seal has been applied to Silverton Road, concluding the $5 million project to upgrade the road between Broken Hill and the historic town of Silverton in the New South Wales far west.

The upgrade started in 2021 and involved work to widen and seal the 18-kilometre section and install new signs and guideposts.

Transport for NSW broadened the initial scope of work, which started in early 2021, to widen the road by two metres on each side and upgrade 25 large drains to match the width of the sealed road.
