The NSW Government is funding upgrades to Manilla Road between Tribe and Jewry streets, Tamworth.
MAR 2019Commencement of work
Work to upgrade the Jewry Street intersection on Manilla Road has started.
The work will involve removing two roundabouts at the Jewry Street intersection and installing new traffic lights, including a pedestrian crossing.
Stage one of the Manilla Road upgrade between Tribe and Jewry streets was completed in March 2017.
This $2.5 million project involved:
- duplicating the southbound lane on Manilla Road between Tribe and Jewry streets
- building a left-turn slip on Tribe Street for traffic entering Manilla Road
- extending the right turn lane from Manilla Road onto Tribe Street.
The second stage of the Manilla Road upgrade opened to traffic on 8 June 2018. Tamworth Regional Council built the $3.5 million upgrade on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services, with the work including:
- building a new roundabout at the Marius Street intersection
- building a new road shoulder on the northbound side of Manilla Road between Marius and Jewry streets, including new kerb and gutter and building a new access to Jack Woolaston Oval.
