WORK TO START ON OXLEY HIGHWAY UPGRADE AT CARROLL
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has today announced another step is about to be taken to improve safety and travel times on the Oxley Highway.
Mr Anderson said work on a new right turn lane into Howe Street from the Oxley Highway at Carroll will start tomorrow.
“The work is yet another example of the NSW Government’s commitment to improving the regional road network for locals, tourists and freight operators.”
“The installation of an additional turning lane will significantly improve safety for motorists entering and exiting the highway at Carroll.
“Line marking will also be improved at this location as part of the upgrade, some road signs will be relocated and minor drainage work will be carried out.”
Mr Anderson said the NSW Government has provided $60 million to improve safety and reduce travel times on the Oxley Highway.
“Work will be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm and take four weeks to complete, weather permitting.”
“Temporary lane closures and a reduced speed limit will be in place during work hours for the safety of workers and motorists.
“Road users are advised to plan their journey and allow extra travel time, as delays of up to five minutes may be experienced while work takes place.”
