Transport for NSW is widening the road east of Cordeaux Dam Road to install a median barrier.

Work will take place over five nights between 7.30pm and 4.30amfromSunday, September 20 to Thursday, September 24, weather permitting.

A reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place during the night work hours.

The road is reduced to one lane in each direction and concrete barriers have been installed along the westbound lane to ensure the safety of workers and road users.

Motorists should be aware of reduced road shoulders when travelling through the project area.

Heavy vehicle operators with loads wider than four metres are required to contact project traffic controllers to be escorted safely through the site.

Truck parking bays are located at either end of the project area for vehicles to pull over to arrange escorts through the site.

Heavy vehicle operators are reminded that vehicles over 15 metres or 12 tonnes are not permitted on Wilton Road at Broughton Pass.

Work currently being undertaken during the day will continue to be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm.

There may be intermittent delays to allow access for construction vehicles and wide loads through the site.

Motorists are advised to follow the directions of signs and traffic control and should allow up to five minutes additional travel time.
