Project Description

Secondary Through road formed from natural sandy loam material with pockets of imported gravel. In wet conditions the road is very slippery with deep ruts across the pavement and must be driven with care. There is a corner approximately 5.3km from intersection that needs to have a slight realignment carried out, as well as improving drainage from overland water inundation. In dry weather the pavement tends to form deep potholes with severe rutting and pavement blow-outs.

Reshape road and gravel sheet – Win and cart gravel – Repair any section of pavement that has blow-outs, realign corner and carry out earth works to improve drainage, spread gravel at 6m wide X 130mm thick, compact to 100mm. Re-establish table and mitre drains, install erosion control measures where necessary.
