Newell upgrades key to National Land Transport Network

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana Chair John Walkom has welcomed Infrastructure Australia earmarking the inland NSW artery as a focus for future development.

“A lot of the projects are metropolitan-based so this is a win for regional Australia,” Mr Walkom said.

Key areas of upgrade on the Newell Highway will include the installation of a new bridge at Dubbo, an upgrade of the Mitchell Highway intersection at Dubbo, additional overtaking lanes, bypasses of Boggabilla, Parkes and Coonabarabran, and more.
