No. 90: Wards Lane level crossing out-of-hours work

We are upgrading level crossings between Parkes and Narromine as part of our work to build Inland Rail. Sometimes this requires the closure of public roads.

No. 90: Wards Lane level crossing out-of-hours work



June 2024

Local Government Area

Due to inclement weather, the Wards Lane level crossing was not completed as scheduled. To finish the work and open the road, we need to concrete the level crossing outside our standard working hours.

We will be working from 4am to 7am Friday 28 February 2020. Following the concrete curing process, Wards Lane will re-open on Monday 2 March 2020.

Location of works

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

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

What we’re doing

  • Pouring concrete to construct the level crossing
  • Transporting material to and around site with heavy vehicles, cement trucks and light vehicles
  • Using lighting towers near the works

What to expect

  • During the work there will be heavy vehicles travelling to and from the work site
  • Traffic management with detour signage will be in place to assist those impacted by the road closure
  • Use of machinery in the works area may include concrete pumps, concrete truck, lighting and light vehicles
  • Some of the machinery we need to use (concrete pumps, concrete truck, vibrating screeds) may have some noise and vibration impacts
