June 2024

Local Government Area

This requires temporary road closures from time to time. Wards Lane, Alectown, is currently closed for laying rail. The closure will be extended until the end of March 2020, eliminating the need for a second closure in the future.

Location of works

Wards Lane, Alectown, between Bogan Road and Plowman Lane, Parkes.

Road detour will be via Plowman Lane, Goonumbla Lane and Bogan Road.

What we’re doing

  • Laying new rail and sleepers
  • Build road formations and new plate over rail
  • Welding rail into place
  • Install new gravel (ballast), tamp (adjust) rail into place
  • Install permanent signage and fencing

What to expect

  • Heavy vehicles will travel to and from the work sites while we carry out this work.
  • Traffic management with detour signage will be in place to assist those impacted by the road closure.
