Kidman Way to undergo drainage improvements

Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries has advised motorists of changed traffic conditions on the Kidman Way between nine to 48 kilometres south of Cobar for drainage improvements from this week until mid-December.

“The NSW Government has allocated $760,000 for work to improve drainage along Kidman Way at 23 locations as part of a broader project to improve safety and reduce water runoff on the road,” Mr Humphries said.

Work will be carried out from Monday to Saturday until mid-December, weather permitting and lane closures may be in place.

Motorists should allow extra travel time and follow all signs including a reduced speed limit.

Mr Humphries said Cobar Shire Council will be carrying out the work on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services.

“Motorists are thanked for their patience while this work is carried out,” Mr Humphries said.
