No. 78: Barrabadeen Creek Road, Peak Hill

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.

Barrabadeen Creek Road closure will be extended to install the new rail, eliminating the need for a second closure in the future.
