Works are nearing completion on the final stage of the Quinns Lane project.
The $1.6 million project has involved the rebuilding of the Quinns Lane road and pavement with lean mix concrete and asphalt.
Mayor, Joanna Gash said despite the recent wet weather the bulk of the asphalt works were completed last week bringing the total asphalt used in the project to over 3,000 tonnes.
The Mayor said the project was funded through Council’s Special Rate Variation program saying the works had been staged to minimise disruption to businesses all of whom had been very patient throughout the construction.
“It is particularly pleasing to see this long awaited project nearing completion,” said Clr Gash.
“Council’s road construction crews have made fantastic progress in trying conditions despite the recent wet weather.
“With the majority of the asphalt having been applied the additional works to be completed involve the installation of new stormwater culverts at Browns Creek.”
“As part of the project Shoalhaven Water will also be coordinating works to reline the trunk water main in order to maintain the reliability of this critical infrastructure used to transport water to the Jervis Bay area.”
Mayor, Joanna Gash said the program of road works across the City in the last 12 months represented a total expenditure of over $20 million, further demonstrating Councils commitment to addressing the infrastructure backlog.
The Mayor outlined a number of significant road projects that had recently been completed including Woodhill Mountain Road, Pyree Lane, Naval College Road, Church Street, Milton and Currambene Street, Huskisson.
Further to this, works on Worrigee Road near Boston Road and Forster Drive at Bawley Point have commenced.
Council will also be undertaking road works on a 380 metre section of Kinghorne Street (from Albatross Road to Dudley street) in order to replace the road pavement.
Work will be undertaken from Saturday 30 May until the start of July.
During this time detours will be in place access to local traffic only, alternative routes will be available through Berry Street or via the Princess Highway.
Council will also be undertaking works on the intersection of Albert and Alexandria Street in Berry which will be starting on Monday 18 May.
Access to shops will be maintained via the footpaths.
The work has been scheduled to minimise disruptions to motorists and businesses, Shoalhaven City Council apologises for any inconvenience.
