The rest area located 4km south of the Menangle Road Overbridge, will be closed from November 16 to December 15 (8pm-5am), and again from January 15 to January 20, 2023 (8pm to 5am), due to pavement work in the area.

These vehicles will then be assisted back into the Hume Motorway to safely continue their journey. This process should take no longer than 30 minutes.
