The road is currently unsealed with consequent dust,drainage and maintenance problems.
Proposal for this project:
• 5m road width. This 5m incorporates a 4m wide sealed section with 1m wide table drains. The 5m width is from table drain invert to invert.
• Where high erosion of the existing table drains is occurring (approx. 500m, both sides), new table drains to be constructed from heavily bound (3%) pug mill gravel and AC. From approx chainage 750, table drains to be formed and grassed.
• Pavement option is insitu stabilisation (4% additive for first 290m, then 2%). There are two sections requiring gravel overlay prior to stabilisation. The first section is approx 100m long requiring 100mm overlay, the second section is the cul-de-sac end requiring 200mm overlay.
• There is a proposed new culvert at approx. chainage 850. The existing culvert at chainage 460 is to be removed. The remaining two culverts at chainages 320 and 60 are proposed to be lengthened with new headwalls and rockwork placed both ends of the culverts to assist with water flow and erosion control.
• Tree removal is to be minimised. Previous options required the removal of approx. 61 trees. The current proposal is to maintain as many trees as possible with the removal of a possible 3-5 likely.
The total cost of the work is $620,000.00 and is jointly funded by Lake Macquarie City Council
