Culvert works on the Newell Highway - Notifications - West Region Projects


Project overview

The NSW Government is carrying out culvert extension works as part of the early works for the Newell Highway pavement rehabilitation north of Croppa Creek.

Early work will include extending nine culverts located on the Newell Highway between Croppa Creek and Tackinbri Creek. We have included a map to show the location of the works.

How will the work affect you?

The work will involve the use of machinery which generates some noise. We will make every effort to minimise noise by arranging the work in stages at different locations, completing noisier activities earlier in the night and turning off machinery and vehicles when not in use.

Traffic changes

There will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe.

Single lane closures and a 60km/h speed limit will be in place at times during work hours and may affect travel times. Motorists should allow up to 10 minutes extra travel time during this work.

Please keep to speed limits and follow the direction of traffic controllers and signs. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
