Kemps Creek - Western Road closure from Monday 2 August 2021
As you are aware, current NSW Government guidelines require a mandatory pause on all construction within Greater Sydney until Saturday 31 July 2021. In response to this announcement, we will return to Western Road to continue the pipeline installation between Cross Street and Elizabeth Drive once the pause is lifted, or as soon as reasonably practicable.
Upcoming work - Western Road closure
To continue installation of the pipeline, we will need to implement a full closure of Western Road between Cross Street and Elizabeth Drive during the daytime. The work will take place for a period of up to 3 weeks between Monday 2 August and Saturday 21 August 2021, weather permitting and pending NSW Health Advice.
A section of Western Road between Cross Street and Elizabeth Drive will be closed to traffic during our work hours. A detour will be in place via Elizabeth Drive, Devonshire Road and Cross Street. Please see the detour map. Local access to Overett Avenue will be maintained, however there may be some delays. Please allow extra time in planning your journey.
We will open one lane to traffic outside of our work hours on a stop-go arrangement using temporary traffic lights.
Our work hours
- 7 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday
- 8 am to 1 pm Saturday
