Transport for NSW is planning an upgrade of Cessnock Road at Testers Hollow to reduce the impact of flooding and improve connectivity.
The project will raise the height of Cessnock Road at Testers Hollow to provide a more reliable connection during certain flood events.
Transport for NSW has awarded the contract to Daracon to build the new, two lane road that will be 1.5 metres higher than the existing road.
A site office and compound has been established on Cessnock Road at the southern end of the project and construction is due to start on Wednesday 4 November 2020. Construction is due to be completed in early 2023, weather permitting.
Maitland residents may experience some delays during this time.
