The existing 3.5m wide bitumen seal is too narrow for the number of commercial vehicles now using this section of Bilwon Road. Two vehicles are unable to pass without utilising the unsealed road
verge or the table drain which creates an unsafe environment for the road users.
The existing road pavement is also substandard and is showing signs of deterioration from heavy use by commercial vehicles.
The proposed works include the widening of the existing 3.5m wide bitumen road to 7.5m to allow the safe passing of commercial vehicles and the reconstruction of the road pavement to improve it's
load bearing capacity.
