Traffic Updates – New England Highway, Singleton and Sydney

National Road Transport Association

New England Highway

The New England Highway is closed in both directions at Singleton due to flooding between White Avenue and Bridgman Road.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area.

Northbound motorists in light vehicles can use Boundary Street, Gresford Road, Dyrring Road, Retreat Road, Bridgeman Road and Blaxland Avenue instead.

Southbound motorists in light vehicles can use Glennies Creek Road and Bridgman Road instead.

Heavy vehicles need to divert via the Golden Highway and should allow plenty of extra travel time.

There is a reduced speed limit on the Golden Highway between Whittingham and Jerrys Plains due to road repairs after flooding.

Other roads in the Hunter are affected by flooding as well, so motorists should take extra care and drive to the conditions.
