The Kelvin Road upgrade is a $6.2 million project which involves the upgrade and sealing of the remaining 11.6kms of Kelvin Road between Gunnedah and Rangari Road. This will improve safety and reliability of the road and provide better access to services.
The project received funding of more than $4 million through the NSW Governments Fixing Local Roads Program and a $2 million contribution from the Australian Government Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program.
Works commenced on site in August 2021 and 11 kilometres of the road have already been sealed.
Since the upgrade began, there have been 98 wet weather days, limiting the work that could be done on the 11.6km project. Work has, however, continued when possible, and Council hopes to have the project completed by May 2023.
