NEXT STAGE OF GRIFFITH SOUTHERN INDUSTRIAL LINK PROJECT SET TO COMMENCE

Following the opening of the Thorne Road/Kidman Way roundabout, Griffith City Council is set to commence work on Stage 6A of the Griffith Southern Industrial Link (GSIL) Project with the sealing of Bromley Road.

The project, funded under ‘Restart NSW Fund – Fixing Country Roads and the Roads to Recovery Program’ aims to improve productivity and safety outcomes of heavy vehicle operations.

Council’s Director Infrastructure and Operations Mr Phil King said the Bromley Road works are planned to be completed by 31 August 2019, subject to weather and latent conditions.

“The project will see the clearing of vegetation, relocating and upgrading of irrigation structures, installation of safety barriers and widening, upgrading and sealing the existing road surface,” said Mr King.

“Normal hours of work will be 6.30am – 5pm Monday to Friday, however in rare instances work may be carried out on a Saturday.

Bromley Road will not be open to traffic until all stages of the GSIL encompassing Kidman Way to Brown Road to the intersection of Walla Avenue and Thorne Road have been completed. We appreciate the patience and support of the community and we are looking forward to delivering this important project for all road users.”

Bromley Road between Brown Road and Walla Avenue will be closed to the general public, with access made available for residents. Butler Road between Bromley Road and Snaidero Road will also be closed with access to affected residents made available from the Snaidero Road end only. Road users are asked to seek an alternative route for the duration of the works.

Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi said he is pleased to see the GSIL progressing.

“This next stage is a continuation of the great work being undertaken by Council to ensure safer roads for our community and transport operators,” said Councillor Dal Broi.

“We appreciate there is some inconvenience for road users, however the GSIL will provide long term rewards by removing heavy vehicles from our city centre.”

Construction is set to commence on Thursday 7 March.
