No. 93: Road upgrade and temporary closure – Mickibri Road

As part of our construction work, we are upgrading roads near level crossings between Parkes and Narromine. While we do this, we need to temporarily close some public roads to ensure the safety of road users.

June 2024

Local Government Area

The western side of Mickibri Road, Alectown will be closed at the intersection of Claremont Lane, from Wednesday 15 April 2020 until mid-May 2020.

A detour will be in place during the closure. Traffic will be diverted south via Claremont Lane, Mickibri Road and The Sandy Lane, or north on Mickibri Road, Trewilga Road, Newell Highway, Alectown.

Location of works

Mickibri Road, Alectown

What we’re doing

  • Building road formations on the western side of the level crossing
  • Sealing the road and marking lines
  • Installing permanent signage and fencing

What to expect

  • Traffic management with detour signage will be in place to assist those impacted by the road closure
  • During the work there will be heavy vehicles travelling to and from the work sites.
