Improvements announced for NSW highway

The NSW and Australian Governments have announced major funding of almost $50 million to improve transport and freight links in country NSW.

NSW Roads Minister Duncan Gay said almost $10 million have been allocated to build new overtaking lanes on the Newell Highway, which will cut down travel times and improve road safety.

“The extra overtaking lanes on the Newell also will help support freight movements in rural NSW,” he said.

These new overtaking lanes are planned in the vicinity of 32 kilometres north of Moree, northbound, 19 kilometres north of Jerilderie, northbound, 58 kilometres north of Jerilderie, southbound and 15 kilometres north of Parkes, southbound.

“Large volumes of freight are carried on this route every day and it is important we provide motorists with safe passing opportunities along this vital route which runs through the spine of country NSW.”
