Work begins on improved Oxley Highway near Gilgandra

19 October 2021

Motorists in the state’s west will soon benefit from $4 million worth of upgrades to the Oxley Highway, west of Gilgandra.

Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Premier Sam Farraway said the work which is funded through the State Government’s Flexible Pavement Program will see a 5 kilometre stretch of the highway receive much needed improvements.

“About 500 motorists drive this section of the Oxley highway everyday so this work will be crucial to delivering smoother, safer journeys, as well as creating up to 50 local jobs,” Mr Farraway said.

“The work includes upgrading the road surface, widening clear zones and improving drainage.”

Work will start today and be carried out between 7am and 6pm on weekdays, and is expected to be complete by the end of February 2022, weather permitting.

Changed traffic conditions including temporary traffic control, reduced lane widths, lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.

Motorists should allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic control and all signs, including reduced speed signs.
