Changed traffic conditions across the Hunter


Numerous thoroughfares throughout the Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and Port Stephens LGAs are set to undergo interruptions from this weekend.

The changed overnight traffic conditions will occur at 17 separate sites, as Transport for NSW crews carry out essential road maintenance work from Sunday 8 October.

Shot blasting is designed to increase surface friction during wet weather and ensure the ongoing safety of motorists.

To minimise the impact, work will be carried out from 7pm to 4.30am on one-to-three sites per night.

It’s expected to be complete by the morning of Monday 16 October, weather permitting.

“Areas with one lane in each direction will have single lane, alternating traffic flow arrangements, portable traffic lights and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h in place during work hours,” a TfNSW spokesperson said.

“Those with two lanes in each direction will have single lane closures, portable traffic lights and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h in place during work hours.

“Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time, drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.”
