It has cost $145 million to seal and upgrade all the remaining unsealed sections on the Cobb and Silver City highways in far western NSW.
From Moama, on the Victorian border, the Cobb Highway runs to the Barrier Highway, near Wilcannia, via Ivanhoe and Hay.
This highway was named in honour of Cobb and Co., a stagecoach company.
Silver City Highway
Buronga, on the Victorian border is connected by the Silver City Highway through to the Queensland border, via Broken Hill and Tibooburra. All remaining sections were completed last year.
So named as the road is north and south of the Silver City, Broken Hill. The inland city’s vast mines include silver, lead and zinc.
The upgrades make a massive difference to locals’ access to schools, hospitals, to safety and for transportation.
