Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions from next week on the Newell Highway, about 26 kilometres south of Forbes.

Changed conditions will be in place to move northbound and southbound traffic onto the newly widened road shoulders in order to continue work on the highway.

Work will be carried out between 7am and 6pm from Monday 2 December to Friday 6 December and is expected will be completed in five days, weather permitting.

For the safety of workers and road users there will be changed traffic conditions in place including reduced speed limits between 40 km/h and 60 km/h during work hours.

Motorists should plan their trip, allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic control and all signs, including reduced speed limits.

Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
