Changed conditions on Thule Road for utility relocations preparations at Nelligen

Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions at the intersection of Thule Road and the Kings Highway at Nelligen from this week as work continues to prepare for utility relocations as part of the Nelligen Bridge replacement. 

The north-western end of Thule Road will be closed to traffic from Wednesday 11 to Wednesday 18 December, weather permitting.

Motorists are advised to use the south-eastern entrance into Thule Road. Motorists travelling to parts of Thule Road or Bridge View Road may require an additional one minute travel time.

Traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h may be in place at different times around the Nelligen Bridge for the safety of workers and road users.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and to follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Some activities will also be carried out on either side of Nelligen Bridge to drill holes and install utility pipes under the Clyde River. Some areas either side of the bridge may be temporarily fenced off however the playground and toilet facilities on the western side of the river will remain open and no traffic impacts are expected in this area.

No work will be carried out over the peak holiday period from Friday 20 December to Monday 6 January 2020, to minimise the impact to motorists and the community.

Transport for NSW thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
