The Western Region is a geographically vast and diverse region with a broad spectrum of population density and transport needs, with our boundaries stretching from Boggabilla in the north to West Wyalong in the south, as far west as Broken Hill and east to Springwood in the Blue Mountains. West currently accounts for 60% of NSW, and is a hive of activity, achieving significant progress in a number of major projects across the region.

Transport for NSW will carry out the work, which includes repairing and replacing the road surface. We have included a map to show the location of the project.

We will be working between 8pm and 5am from Sunday 21 August to Thursday 25 August and expect to complete the work in five nights, weather permitting. We will let you know in advance if we need to do any
work outside these times.

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 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.

During work hours, all traffic will be diverted on the Mid Western Highway via Blayney which will add an additional 15 minutes to travel times.

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.
