Weekday Night Closure of The Kings Highway – October 2020

We will be running 30 minutes early from 12th October 2020 for Rx1 and Rx2 for three weeks due to Clyde Mountain road works. Here’s why:

Memo from Transort for NSW:

Weekday night closure of the Kings Highway at Clyde Mountain from Monday 12 October

What are we doing?

Transport for NSW will carry out essential maintenance work on Clyde Mountain including slope stabilisation in response to recent rainfall.

The Kings Highway at Clyde Mountain will be closed in both directions at night between 6pm and 6am, Monday to Thursday for about three weeks from 12 October, weather permitting.

Work will also be carried out in the day between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Thursday and 6am and 12pm on Fridays.

 How will the work affect you?

To carry out this work safely we will need to close the road to traffic at night time.

Detours for light vehicles will be via the Princes Highway and Nerriga Road and are expected to add up to 75 minutes to journeys.

Detours for heavy vehicles will be via the Princes Highway, Picton Road, the Hume Highway and Snowy Mountains Highway and are expected to add up to 3.5 hours to journeys.

During day time work hours, traffic control, lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists. Delays of up to 10 minutes can be expected.

The road will be open from 12pm on Fridays until 6am on Mondays to allow for weekend traffic.
