Project information

The Australian and NSW Governments are investing $40 million to upgrade the intersection of the Newell Highway and Oxley Highway, four kilometres north-east of Coonabarabran. The intersection links two key routes, north-south on the Newell Highway between Goondiwindi, Queensland and Shepparton, Victoria and east-west on the Oxley Highway between Port Macquarie and Warren. 

The existing intersection is a T junction with priority given to Oxley Highway traffic over Newell Highway traffic. The upgraded intersection will improve travel time and help to reduce the risk of crashing at this location.   

  • support more efficient movement of freight
  • reduce the crash rate at the intersection
  • improve travel time on this section of the Newell Highway
