Drivers are advised to be aware of increased heavy vehicle movements and possible traffic delays along two sections of the Oxley Highway in regional New South Wales.
Works began earlier this month to repair two flood-damaged causeways on the Oxley Highway about three kilometres north of Warren.
An inspection of the Ewenmar and Tiger Bay causeways following extreme weather in late 2022 found they required flood repairs to ensure the safe condition of the highway.
Transport for NSW regional director West Alistair Lunn said the Oxley Highway was a key regional route linking western NSW with the eastern seaboard and repairing the two causeways would benefit all road users.
“A series of extreme weather events in 2021 and 2022 left us with damage right across the NSW road network and this area in the state’s west was no exception,” Lunn said.
“Work on the Ewenmar and Tiger Bay causeways will include replacing the existing road pavement with asphalt to deliver a more resilient surface that will be better able to withstand future flooding events.
“This project will not only improve the road quality for all local, tourist and freight road users, but also return the road level to design standards.”
The repair work is expected to take five weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Work hours will be 7am to 6pm seven days a week, with no work on public holidays.
