Road Works:

New England Highway roundabout

Council is constructing a new roundabout on the New England Highway, approximately 5km south of Armidale, to provide access to a proposed industrial subdivision and safer access to the Armidale Regional Airport Terminal.

The two-lane reinforced concrete roundabout will significantly improve traffic flows and safety for motorists on the highway and airport entrance and will include provision for future development on adjacent private land.

There will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe.Traffic flow through the work site during construction will be limited to 40kph but generally there will be little requirement to stop traffic travelling on the New England Highway.Speed restrictions will be in place for the safety of workers, motorists and other road users. All motorists are advised to allow extra travel time.

Work began in March 2018.

The $3.2 million project is jointly funded by Armidale Regional Council ($1.2 million), Roads and Maritime Services NSW ($1 million) and the Federal Government ($1 million).
