Toc. round­about project to be­gin

Southern Riverina news - - News -

A $6 mil­lion Tocumwal round­about project has been awarded to Cut and Fill Pty Ltd.

The com­pany will com­plete con­crete road resur­fac­ing on the Newell Hwy round­about, at the in­ter­sec­tion of Tup­pal Rd and De­niliquin Rd.

The NSW Gov­ern­ment funded project is expected to start next month and be com­plete next year.

Mem­ber for Mur­rayDar­ling John Wil­liams an­nounced the ten­der had been awarded last week.

He said it was an im­por­tant project for Tocumwal, with the Newell Hwy be­com­ing a ma­jor re­gional hub for grain trans­porta­tion to and from Vic­to­ria.

The project aims to en­sure this sec­tion of high­way meets cur­rent de­sign stan­dards, im­proves road safety and in­creases the life of the road, he said.

‘‘The work in­volves re­plac­ing the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing as­phalt road sur­face on the round­about with con­crete.

‘‘The guardrail be­tween the round­about and the bridge will also be re­placed to pre­vent ve­hi­cles from driv­ing over the em­bank­ment.

‘‘Cut and Fill Pty Ltd will start work in Au­gust. De­tours and traf­fic con­trol will be in place dur­ing work to re­duce the im­pact on high­way and lo­cal traf­fic.’’

New ar­range­ments will in­clude:

● A tem­po­rary side road built on the Tup­pal Rd side of the round­about for through traf­fic trav­el­ling be­tween Fin­ley and Vic­to­ria and traf­fic turn­ing into Tup­pal Rd;

● Tem­po­rar­ily ex­tend­ing Fin­ley St to meet the Newell Hwy for one way, light traf­fic only;

● No ac­cess to the round­about from De­niliquin Rd;

● Heavy ve­hi­cle ac­cess for ve­hi­cles weigh­ing more than 4.5 tonnes us­ing Race­course Rd and Mur­ray St on the eastern side of Tocumwal and Si­los Rd and Tup­pal Rd on the western side of Tocumwal.
