Share this story

A new roundabout will open at the intersection of Old Bathurst Road and Smith Street in Emu Plains on Thursday, May 18, with motorists urged to be aware of the upcoming changes.

Road signage will be updated to reflect this change as the roundabout replaces the T-intersection.

Nightwork will also progress through May to continue essential work on the Emu Plains Commuter Car Park project.

As final preparations are made for the new roundabout, Transport for NSW is advising of changed traffic conditions next week.

A section of Old Bathurst Road between the Great Western Highway and Smith Street will be closed for night work between 9pm and 5am from Monday, May 15 to Friday, May 19 for finishing work on the new roundabout, weather permitting.

A detour will be in place via Russell Street and workers will be on site to set up from 6pm each night. To minimise impacts to motorists, Old Bathurst Road will be reopened as soon as work has been completed each night.

“Utility work will also take place over the weekend of May 20-21,” a Transport for NSW spokesperson said.

“Minor traffic flow changes will be made as required, and traffic controllers and signage will be in place for the safety of motorists and workers.

“Further night work is required during May and June to undertake finishing work for the roundabout including concreting, road surfacing, line marking, utility relocation and other activities.”

Road users are advised to observe roadside signage for up-to-date information regarding the latest closure information, drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
