Changed traffic conditions on the Newell Highway at Bundure

Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions from this week on the Newell Highway, near Jerilderie.

Traffic will be temporarily diverted onto the southbound lane west of Colombo Road at Bundure, 33 kilometres north-east of Jerilderie, from Friday 12 June for work on the northbound lane to be completed.

Work will be carried out between 7 am and 6 pm weekdays and between 8 am and 6 pm Saturday. 

The changed conditions will remain in place until the overtaking lanes are completed in late June 2020, weather permitting.

For the safety of workers and road users, traffic control and reduced speed limits will be in place at all times.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and obey signs and traffic control.

Transport for NSW thanks road users for their patience during this time.

Septic Tank Inspections

High risk septic tanks will be inspected in the coming months. This includes septic tanks and other effluent disposal systems in closely settled areas and along the Billabong, Colombo and Yanco Creeks.

The reason that those in closely settled areas and close to permanent water courses will be inspected is because they pose the highest potential risk to both human and environmental health.

Council will be charging a fee for this inspection.

After each inspection, Council’s officer may recommend some improvements to minimise the risk to human and environmental health. 

Some of the things that Council will be looking at include:

•    Effluent ponding at ground level.
•    Distance of disposal area from watercourse
•    Distance of disposal area from neighbours
•    Septic tank size and construction

Got any questions?  Please feel free to give Council a call on 03 5886 1200.
