The Australian and NSW Governments are funding the $172 million Parkes Bypass project. The bypass seeks to improve connectivity, road transport efficiency and safety for local and interstate motorists.

Early Works

The planned early works will be delivered by Parkes Shire Council and will support 20 council and contractor jobs.

Parkes Shire Council has already completed the first two packages of early works:

  • Nock Road was completed in November 2020 and included the permanent closure of Nock Road at the Newell Highway and construction of a bitumen sealed road between the Newell Highway and Bleechmore Road.
  • Reedsdale Road was completed in late December 2020 and created a link road between Mitchell Street and Thomas Street which included construction of a new bitumen sealed road with stormwater improvements and guardrail work.

The third package of local road work will start on Wednesday 27 January. This work is the construction of a new local road, between Henry Parkes Way (Condobolin Road) and Back Trundle Road, to replace a section of the existing Moulden Street.

The third package of work is expected to take eight weeks to complete and we will be working between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday.

After this is complete a new section of road will be constructed between Brolgan Road and Hartigan Avenue.

In addition to the road construction work there is also a number of utility relocations occurring in the area. The utility works include protection of high pressure gas mains and relocation of water mains, optic fibre, power poles and overhead electrical power.
