However, a spokesperson for Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) saysthe project is still on track for a mid-2017 completion.

According to the spokesperson,alternative plans wereput in place to allow Burton Contractors to meet the deadline.

“While significant rainfall since the start of winter has meant the project team has lost about one and a half months of work, Burton Contractors and Roads and Maritime Services have been able to reschedule activities to minimise the impact,” the spokesperson said.

The weather is just one issue facing Burton’s this coming week.

With the October long weekend underway andthe Bathurst 1000 fast approaching, the company will need to make allowances for the additional traffic moving through the city.

“For the October long weekend and next week, two lanes from View Street westbound into Bathurst and two lanes from Gilmourto View streets have been opened to manage traffic flow during the holiday break,” the RMS spokesperson said.

“The Lee Street detour will remain open so motorists heading to Oberon can bypass the roadwork.”

Motorists are askedto take care, particularly when travelling through the work site,and to keep to the signposted speed limit during thistime.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole saidBurton Contractors “has done an incredible job” despite all the rain and motorists need to be patient as work continues on the major infrastructure project.

“We’ve experienced quite a bit of wet weather, but we are still expecting completion around mid next year,” he said.
