Browns Gap Road to open to one lane of traffic

Browns Gap Road Reopens to one lane.
After extensive repair work on Browns Gap Road, Lithgow City Council is pleased to announce that the Browns Gap Road is now open to motorists with one single lane opening as of 9:00am Friday 10th May.

Traffic lights are in place to allow drivers from both directions to use the single lane in turn. This arrangement will be in place to facilitate works on the road to continue, while still allowing residents to use the road.

Browns Gap Road has been closed to all traffic since July 2022, due to immediate concerns of geotechnical instability (rockslide and embankment failure) which arose from the extended period of rainfall experienced over the course of 2021-2022.

The scale of works to repair the road was outside of Lithgow City Council’s operational budget and the project required funding support from the NSW state government. Lithgow Council was successful in receiving the funding which was approved under the NSW Governments Disaster Recovery Fund totalling $6 million dollars.
