Safety upgrades taking shape on Riverina Highway at Balldale
Transport for NSW will begin work this month on a new project to improve safety and reduce maintenance costs along the Riverina Highway near Balldale, about 15 kilometres North West of Howlong.
Member for Albury Justin Clancy said the work is the first stage of a $3.65 million upgrade of a four-year project, designed to provide a safer road environment along the Riverina Highway.
“The project involves upgrading a 3.4 kilometre section of the Riverina Highway, which will contribute to a smoother and safer journey for all motorists,” Mr Clancy said.
“This work will improve safety on the Riverina Highway and reduce future maintenance costs by rebuilding the road surface, widening shoulders, and installing rumble strips and wide centre lines.
“We look forward to delivering the first stage of this upgrade and will continue to keep the community informed on the project’s progress.”
Work will start on Monday 23 November 2020 and will be carried out between 7am and 6pm weekdays and between 7am and 1pm Saturdays, and is expected to be completed by the April 2021, weather permitting.
Changed traffic conditions will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists including traffic control, lane closures and reduced speed limits.
Motorists are advised to plan their journey and allow extra journey time.
Access to property will be impacted during some stages of the project. Property owners will be contacted and traffic controllers will be in place to guide road users.
Transport for NSW thanks the community for their patience while these important road and safety improvement works are carried out.
