Motorists are being warned to expect lane closures and speed reductions while work takes place on the M1 extension to Raymond Terrace this week.
The multi-million-dollar project, which is expected to ease congestion on one of the state’s busiest thoroughfares when finished, will require several changes to overnight traffic conditions as Transport for NSW (TfNSW) personnel proceed with the various tasks.
Lane closures and temporary speed reductions are scheduled at the following locations:
- M1 Pacific Motorway northbound lane closure between Black Hill Road and John Renshaw Drive from now until Friday 24 November (8pm to 5am)
- New England Highway eastbound lane closure between Quarter Sessions Road and Anderson Drive off-ramp on Tuesday 21 November (8pm to 5am)
- New England Highway westbound shoulder closure from now until Friday 24 November (8pm to 5am)
- Maitland Road westbound lane closure from now until Friday 24 November (8pm to 5am)
- Pacific Highway southbound shoulder closure, near Tomago Road, from Wednesday 22 November to Friday 24 November (8pm to 5am)
- Pacific Highway northbound lane closure, opposite the Hunter Region Botanical Gardens, from now until Friday 24 November (8pm to 5am)
“People are advised to allow extra travel time and follow the directions of signs and traffic controllers,” a TfNSW spokesperson said.
“We thank everyone for their patience during this period.”
