Southern Feeder Road Stage 3 Construction
SFR3 is effectively an upgrade of Blowes Road and Dairy Creek Road. The design of the SFR3 is now 99% complete following advice from Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) that they will endorse the construction of a seagull intersection at the Mitchell Highway.
It is proposed to call tenders for the SFR3 within the next month.
As detailed last meeting information has been set to John Holland Rail (JHR) to gain approval to bore under the Orange to Broken Hill railway line. As soon as land matters have been finalised and conditions from JHR received it is proposed to go out with a request for tender. This is still anticipated to occur in September.
