NIGHT WORK TO BEGIN ON THE M4 MOTORWAY AT THE NORTHERN ROAD, SOUTH PENRITH

Friday September 1, 2017

Roads and Maritime Services are starting work to build a new bridge over the M4 Motorway at the Northern Road, South Penrith. 

Work includes installing temporary barriers, building temporary access roads, concrete platforms, retaining walls, earthworks, transporting equipment, clearing vegetation, installing signs and line marking. 

Work will be carried out at night between 7pm and 8am from Friday, 8 September to Sunday, 3 December 2017, weather permitting.

As part of this work, the M4 entry and exit ramps at The Northern Road will be closed between 10pm and 8am on the following dates:

  • Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September 2017: Eastbound on-ramp to the M4 Motorway and Westbound off-ramp to The Northern Road

 

  • Friday 15 and Saturday 16 September 2017: Eastbound off-ramp to The Northern Road and Westbound on-ramp to the M4 Motorway 

 

  • Friday 29 and Saturday 30 September 2017: Eastbound on-ramp to the M4 Motorway and Westbound off-ramp to The Northern Road.

 

Detours during ramp closures will be in place and these may affect travel times. Detour maps are available on the RMS website.

To ensure the safety of workers and motorists, the speed limit on the M4 Motorway between Kent Road, Claremont Meadows and Mulgoa Road, Jamisontown will be reduced to 80km/h, 24 hours a day seven days a week from Friday, 8 September 2017. This reduced speed limit will be in place until project completion in 2020.
