$32M Mitchell Highway upgrade now complete

A $32 million project to build new overtaking lanes on the Mitchell Highway between Dubbo and Narromine, New South Wales, has been completed.

The three new overtaking lanes along the 36-kilometre stretch of the Mitchell Highway will provide a safer journey and reduce travel times.

As part of the project, significant intersection upgrades have been made at Wynsley Lane and Lagoon Creek, allowing motorists to turn on and off the highway more safely.

“The Mitchell Highway is an important freight and tourism route,” said Minister for Regional Transport and Roads, Jenny Aitchison.

“It’s great to see the NSW Labor Government is investing in regions like Dubbo, Narromine and Gilgandra.

“On a recent visit to Narromine I could see why motorists are so excited about these new overtaking lanes that have slashed travel times, increased safety and allowed for a smoother journey.

“The NSW Labor Government thanks all the workers and crews who spent two years making this project a reality for the more than 5,000 motorists who use this road daily.”

In other news, the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator is set to launch an on-road targeted operation in support of the construction sector.
