Roadwork to affect traffic conditions at Hexham

MOTORISTS are advised of changed overnight traffic conditions on Maitland Road between the Newcastle Inner City Bypass and the Oak Precinct to progress the Hexham Straight Widening project.

Out of hours work will be carried out from Sunday 3 December, which includes installation of barriers and line-marking, removing and building new road pavements, traffic signal work, installation of utility services and service investigations.

To minimise the impact to motorists, work will be carried out overnight from 7pm to 5am from Sundays to Thursdays and is expected to be complete by 3am on Friday 22 December, weather permitting.

Normal working hours remain in place between 7am and 6pm on weekdays and 8am and 1pm on Saturdays.

Major work will finish at the site on Friday 22 December and will resume on Monday 8 January 2024.

Lane closures, traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.

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.
