Construction set to start on local roads connecting to New England Solar Farm

Construction on the local road network connecting to the New England Solar Farm site is set to begin after final approvals were granted this week.

The work will initially focus on segments 4 and 5 (see map) at the eastern end of Big Ridge Rd, leading into the solar farm site.

The work will involve the construction of a gravel road within the existing road corridor. The work on the remain segments is expected to commence over the next month. Further updates on timing of those works will be provided in the next project update.

Staff from our construction contractor Green Light Contractors will letter box and door knock residents in the area to ensure they have information on the roadworks.

To find out more information on the work, residents can contact Laura Russell our Community Liaison Officer at Green Light Contractors directly by calling 0417 261 453 or emailing to
