The Goulburn Mulwaree Council has raised concerns about an upcoming upgrade of seven kilometres of the Hume Highway near Marulan.
A council spokesperson said they had concerns homes in Marulan may be affected by noise, dust and light spill around the project sites, and the council believed community consultation with residents and homeowners needed to be undertaken urgently.
"Although access to Marulan will be maintained, we also have concerns around the effects on access to the quarrying industry which is a significant contributor to our economy and employment," they said.
"The council has real concerns that the main tender is about to be advertised, and we are now just three months away from the start of this work, with no consultation with the community undertaken."
A Transport for NSW (TfNSW) spokesperson said access to all properties and businesses would be maintained while work was carried out.
"TfNSW is planning to rebuild sections of the Hume Highway along the Marulan Bypass in the second half of this year, weather permitting," they said.
"TfNSW will ensure measures are in place to limit dust, light and noise from this project and work will not be carried out during school or public holidays.
"Timing for the start of work and work hours are still to be determined but the local community will be kept informed as plans for the work progress."
