Lithgow Council is to temporarily close Wolgan Road, Wolgan Valley, due to planned upgrades.

The works are expected to commence on Monday 26 July. Works will see targeted lengths of the unsealed road gravel re-sheeted, roadside drainage re-established, and the surface profile reshaped. This is part of an extensive roads maintenance program which will be undertaken by Lithgow Council over the next 12 months.

Works are expected to continue for up to 3 weeks and every effort will be made to reduce the impact of any closures. During this period, access will be intermittently restricted to residents only.

These works are part of a program to improve the performance and surface quality of Lithgow’s rural road network. The patience of affected residents and motorists is appreciated and Council advises that changed traffic conditions must be observed while travelling through the area.
