No. 65: Barber Lane, Alectown

We are upgrading level crossings between Parkes and Narromine as part of our work to build Inland Rail. While we do this, we need to temporarily close public roads.

Construction notification



June 2024

Local Government Area

Barber Lane, Alectown, is currently closed and the closure will be extended to install the new rail, eliminating the need to close the lane again in the future. Barber Lane will now remain closed until end of February 2020.

Local traffic will be maintained wherever possible.
