Hay Road temporarily closed in Darlington Point

Murrumbidgee Council is advising motorists of the temporary closure of Hay Road from Britts Road to the Sturt Highway, while levee bank construction works are in progress.

General Manager John Scarce said it was necessary to temporarily close Hay Road while the levee bank construction is underway.

“This temporary road closure is in place for both motorist safety and for the safety of our construction crew,” Mr Scarce said.

Access to the Sturt Highway is available via Carrington Street.

The road closure will be in place until 30 September 2019.

Local residents will continue to have access to their properties.

There is also a reduced speed limit and changed traffic conditions on Britts Road.

Mr Scarce thanked everyone for their patience while the construction continues that will see Darlington Point protected from floods in the future.
