Shoalhaven Roads Renewal

Shoalhaven City Council is renewing roads throughout the City including Pyree Lane, Braidwood Road, Gerroa Road, Coolangatta Road, Woodhill Mountain Road and Bolong Road starting from early May.

 

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash said that the work undertaken is essential to help ensure a safer road network for all users. “As a result of the roadwork, residents and visitors should see marked improvement in road conditions in a number of areas throughout the Shoalhaven” said Clr Gash.

 

Council is reconstructing and widening a 1.5km section of Pyree Lane. The full width reconstruction of the road will commence next month, the contractor Hisway establishes on-site in early May. The program for this major work is 5 months, weather permitting. This is funded by the NSW State Government under the NSW Local Government Road Review Program (now NSW Safer Roads Program).

 

Road rehabilitation works will be undertaken on Braidwood Road to align with the contractor works in May, to minimise the period of disruption to motorists. Council has worked with the contractor to schedule the road work on parts of Braidwood Road that deteriorated due to an increase in heavy vehicles.

 

Council is reconstructing a 1km section of Coolangatta Road. The full width reconstruction of the road will also involve widening the road from its current width of less than 6 metres to 8 metres. The contractor Roadworx are expected to commence after the school holidays, weather permitting.

 

Sections of Woodhill Mountain Road in Berry will also undergo reconstruction works in coming months. Councils work crews are expected to commence in the middle of May, weather permitting. This works involves reconstruction of the pavement in two stages to minimise disruption. The work is to commence in the lower sections from Broughton Vale Road. Unfortunately due to the recent wet weather, work in steep areas will be delayed until drier conditions prevail. These works are part funded through the Roads to Recovery program.

 

Stage 2, of Bolong Road works is a continuation of road and shoulder widening. These works are currently underway to improve subsurface drainage, shoulders and bitumen sealing on a stretch south from Coolangatta Estate to the old Coolangatta School. This work is also funded by the NSW State Government under the NSW Safer Roads Program.

 

Gerroa Road works involves shoulder construction, this work will also commence in May. This is a continuation of the work on the shoulders over along this 6.5km stretch known colloquially as the “Sandtrack” from the City boundary (north of the Beach Road intersection) south to the northern access to Shoalhaven Heads. This work is funded under the Federal Government’s Nation Building Blackspot Program.

The key benefit of these works is improving road safety. The project teams will ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum, Council suggests that motorists plan their journey. While the roads will remain open, motorists may experience delays.
