Night work to begin on New England Highway at Muswellbrook

MOTORISTS are advised of changed traffic conditions next week on the New England Highway near the intersection of Muscle Creek Road at Muswellbrook to improve safety and travel times. 

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will carry out essential maintenance work, which includes road resurfacing from Sunday, November 12.

Work will be carried out between 6pm and 5am from Sunday to Thursday and will be completed in three weeks, weather permitting. 

There will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe, including a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h during work hours and 80 km/h outside work hours. 

The work will involve the use of equipment which may generate some noise. Roads and Maritime will make every effort to minimise noise by turning off machinery and vehicles when not in use. 

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control. 

The RMS thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
