Works to widen the Riverina Hwy near Finley began last week in an effort to improve safety conditions.
Coordinated by Roads and Maritime Services, a 2km section of the highway will be rebuilt to provide a safer, wider and more durable road surface, while also reducing maintenance costs.
Berrigan Shire Council has also started a separate road upgrade in Finley, to install a pedestrian crossing near Denison St.
Berrigan Shire general manager Rowan Perkins said the crossing was part of a public access mobility plan to make access safer.
‘‘It will make pedestrians more visible to motorists,’’ he said.
Riverina Highway works will continue on all weekdays and on Saturdays until June, conditions allowing.
Works will be carried out between 7am to 4pm.
One lane access will be available at all times and motorists are urged to slow down to 40km/h.
Electronic warning signs provide motorists with advanced warning of the works.
Motorists may be delayed for up to 10 minutes and are advised to plan their journey to factor in extra travel time.
