Hexham Straight Widening continues along Maitland Road

SHARE

Construction work is scheduled to continue, from this weekend, on the Hexham Straight Widening project.

To minimise the impact on motorists, it’ll be carried out from 7pm to 5am on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights, finishing at 5am on Wednesday 24 April, weather permitting.

Planned works are:

  • Lane and shoulder closures with a 40km/h speed reduction inbound and outbound from Newcastle on Maitland Road at the intersection of Old Maitland Road and the Newcastle Inner City Bypass from Sunday 21 April to Tuesday 23 April
  • Lane and shoulder closure inbound to Newcastle with a 40km/h speed reduction on Maitland Road between Ironbark Creek bridge and the Newcastle Inner City Bypass from Sunday 21 April to Monday 22 April
  • Lane and shoulder closures with a 40km/h speed reduction inbound and outbound from Newcastle on Maitland Road between Ironbark Creek bridge and Sparke Street on Tuesday 23 April
  • Lane and shoulder closures with a 40km/h speed reduction inbound and outbound from Newcastle on Maitland Road between Old Maitland Road and the Hexham Bridge from Sunday 21 April to Tuesday 23 April

A temporary speed of 60km/h will remain in place, throughout the project, during ongoing day work, too.

“There’ll also be significant restrictions for over-size over mass vehicles with ground contact wider than 4.2m,” a Transport for NSW (TfNSW) spokesperson said.

“Permit holders are required to contact the project team on 1800 515 141 to plan times and movements through or around the works.

“Motorists are advised to follow the directions of signs and traffic controllers, use alternative routes where possible or allow up to 15 minutes extra travel time.

“We thank everyone for their patience during these important construction works.”
