New England Hwy to see $2.1M upgrade

The NSW Government is providing $2.1 million to upgrade the New England Highway which is set to benefit 2,500 road users.

The highway, according to NSW Regional Director North, Anna Zycki, provides an important road network link for residents, local industries and tourism.

“These improvements will ensure safer and smoother journeys for all road users,” said Zycki.

The Upgrade works, which are expected to occur north of Glen Innes and Ten Mile Hill, include wide shoulder and safety barrier installations, vegetation clearing, road rehabilitation and surface improvements.

“Safety along this section of the highway will also be improved by reinstatement of Audio Tactile Line Marking (ATLM),” said Zycki.

“Work on the project will start on Monday 4 December and will be carried out from 6.30am to 6pm on weekdays and Saturdays.

“Traffic control, single lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place during work hours, which may affect travel times.

“Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.”

Work on the project is expected to be completed in February 2023, weather permitting.

Meanwhile, the Queensland Government has started works on the Inland Freight Route, also known as the Second Bruce, through a $107 million early works package.
