We'll be working on these projects between 6.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday, and required Saturdays from 6.30am to 5pm.
Traffic control will be in place for the safety of motorists and workers - including lane closures, reduced speed limits and alternating stop/slow zones.
If you're travelling in the areas, please plan ahead (including wide-load and heavy vehicles), check signage and allow for delays.
Council and its contractors will endeavour to keep disruptions to a minimum in the work areas.
Culgoora Road Corner upgrade
These works are the final stage of the Culgoora Road Upgrade, with works expected to continue through to March 2024.
Works include upgrading the road pavement and widening the road shoulders to 9 metres. Upgrades will improve access and connectivity for freight, support the use of high-performance vehicles and improve road safety for all users.
Leards Forest Road rehabilitation
Works for Leards Forest Road rehabilitation will see restoration of segments of the road damaged due to weather events. Works are expected to take approximately two weeks.
Works include road rehabilitation of around 1km, in situ stabilisation, guideposts installation and bitumen road seal.
This project has been made possible thanks to Transport for NSW via the Regional Roads Repair Fund.
Old Narrabri and Turrawan Road Intersection upgrade
Construction on the Old Narrabri and Turrawan Road intersection realignment and sealing is underway. Works are expected to take approximately six months.
Works include reconstruction and sealing of 1.3km of gravel road, pavement strengthening sealing, widening to accommodate heavy vehicle use and dual passage and drainage improvement.
There will also be works associated with culverts and swale drains, minor modifications to levels and minor vegetation clearing.
These works have been made possible through the NSW Government under the Resources for Regions program.
