Changed overnight traffic conditions north of Muswellbrook

Motorists are advised of changed overnight traffic conditions on New England Highway on Monday to carry out maintenance work between Burtons Lane and Koolbury Flats Row north of Muswellbrook.

Transport for NSW will carry out the work, which includes removing an overhead structure that houses point-to-point speed cameras.

The work is part of early enabling work for the New England Highway bypass of Muswellbrook.

Work will be carried out from 7pm on Monday 18 July to 5am on Tuesday 19 July.  The work is expected to be completed in one shift, weather permitting.

Temporary single lane closures, traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place, which may affect travel times.

Oversize and over mass vehicles could be impacted and may need to park for one hour between 9:30pm and 10:30pm while the gantry is being removed.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
