Upgrade nearing completion

The Old Narrandera Road upgrade project is entering its final phase.

Old Narrandera Road reopened to through traffic earlier this week. While the road is open, the remaining works being carried out under traffic control including a reduced speed limit of 40 kilometres per hour.

Contractors are currently completing work on the road base, which will provide a solid foundation for the road surface.

Weather permitting, it is expected the final bitumen seal will be applied early next week.

Once the final seal has been applied, contractors will move onto the finishing touches, which will include installing guard rails and signage and undertaking line marking.

Project Information

This upgrade forms part of Pine Gully Road Corridor Works servicing the residents of Gobbagombalin, Estella and Charles Sturt University.

This project will increase the capacity of these roads to accommodate both the present and future traffic demands in the area.

The upgrade includes:

  • reconstructing pavement of Old Narrandera Road from a point approximately 100m west of the Olympic Highway intersection to, and including, the Pine Gully Road intersection
  • widening this section of Old Narrandera Road from 2 to 4 lanes (2 lanes in each direction)
  • creating a dedicated right turn lane onto Pine Gully Road from Old Narrandera Road
  • creating a channelised T-intersection with a left turn slip lane out of Pine Gully Road onto Old Narrandera Road
  • reconstructing approximately 100m of Pine Gully Road pavement from the Old Narrandera Road intersection
  • improving drainage by replacing culverts and constructing table drains
  • installing new signage, concrete medians and guardrails.

The upgrade is expected to take approximately 12 weeks to complete (August to October 2023), weather depending.

Benefits of this project

This project will:

  • make your journey smoother by improving the condition of Old Narrandera Road between the Olympic Highway and Pine Gully Road
  • improve traffic flow in the area by doubling the number of lanes on this section of road from 2 to 4
  • improve traffic flow and safety with new dedicated right and left turning lanes for vehicles
