Maintenance Work To Start On Great Western Highway At St Marys and Claremont Meadows

Monday August 5, 2013

Motorists travelling on the Great Western Highway between St Marys and Werrington will soon benefit from a maintenance project starting this month to improve the highway surface. 

“The NSW Government has allocated $966,000 to upgrade the highway in my electorate between Princess Mary St, St Marys and Gipps Street, Claremont Meadows to provide a safer road surface for all road users,” said Mrs Tanya Davies, MP for Mulgoa.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will carry out two months’ work on weeknights starting Monday 12 August between 8pm and 5am, weather permitting. RMS will replace damaged slabs and resurface all six lanes.

Temporary lane closures will be in place while work is carried out and driveway access may be affected by up to ten minutes each shift.

“Residents have been advised that diamond grinding work to smooth the road may be noisy, and every effort will be made to reduce impacts to residents,” Tanya Davies said.

Electronic message signs and traffic controllers will be in place to direct motorists. 

Motorists are reminded to follow the signs, including reduced speed limits while work is carried out.
