Emergency repair work on the Kamilaroi Highway - Notifications - West Region Projects


Project overview

The NSW Government is carrying out emergency repair work to improve safety on the Spring Creek Bridge on the Kamilaroi Highway west of Narrabri

Transport for NSW will carry out emergency repair work on the Spring Creek Bridge from Friday 27 May and expect to complete the work in four weeks, weather permitting.

During this time the Kamilaroi Highway between Narrabri and Wee Waa will closed to vehicles over 15 tonnes. See map below for location of the heavy vehicle detour.

How will the work affect you?

We will be working between 7am and 5pm from Mondayto Friday and expect to complete the work by four weeks, weather permitting.

We will let you know in advance if we need to do any work outside these times.

The work will involve the use of machinery which generates some noise. We will make every effort to minimise noise by turning off machinery and vehicles when not in use.

Traffic changes

Access will be maintained for all other vehicles with a reduced speed limit of 60km/hr in place 24 hours a day until work is complete. Motorists should allow up to 10 minutes extra travel time during this work.

There will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe including a detour for vehicles over 15 tonnes from Narrabri and Wee Waa via Culgoora Road.

The detour directions from Narrabri is at the intersection of the Newell Highway and Mooloobar Street, turn onto Yarrie Lake Road, then Culgoora Road to Wee Waa via Short Street and Warrior Street.

The detour will add an additional 10 kilometres to the journey from Narrabri to Wee Waa.

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 livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
