Repair Works, Corner of Baird Drive and Springfield Way

On Saturday 18th August 2018, Baird Drive will be closed in both directions with detours in place to undertake work to replace a broken water main which passes under Baird Drive in Dubbo’s West. Surrounding residents may experience some minor water disruptions throughout the repairs.

Emergency works were initially undertaken to repair the broken main and temporary road patching were carried out to limit inconvenience. After investigation the water main requires replacing and the road surfaces need further repair.

Baird Drive southbound traffic will be detoured via Timberi Drive and Northbound traffic via Springfield Way. Motorists are asked to follow the signage and directions of onsite traffic control staff.

Reduced speed limits have been put in place on Baird Drive due to the rough surfaces following the temporary repairs. Motorists are reminded to travel at the reduced speed limit through the site until permanent repairs are completed.

Council staff have considered the heavy flow of traffic on this road way during the week and have elected to carry out works on a weekend to minimise disruption.
