Cumberland Highway upgrade to restart

Motorists are reminded work will restart this weekend to extend the dual right turn lanes from Cumberland Highway into Victoria Street at Smithfield to reduce congestion and improve safety.

“This $715,000 project is fully funded by the NSW Government and is part of the NSW Government’s $246 million pinch point program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and reduce travel times,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.

“Roads and Maritime will carry out work from Sunday 19 January until mid-February from 8pm to 5am, Sunday to Thursday. Some day work will be carried out from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and 8am to 1pm on Saturday, weather permitting.

“Work includes rebuilding part of the existing median, road surfacing and line marking.

“The Roads and Maritime depot at Fox Street at Holroyd is being used as the site compound for the project.

“Partial lane closures will be in place while work is carried out to increase safety for workers and motorists.

“Minor delays are expected due to changed traffic conditions.

“Motorists are reminded to follow reduced speed limits and the directions of traffic controllers.

“Every effort will be made to minimise noise and disruption associated with the work.

“Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while this work is carried out,” the spokesperson said.
