Project Description

Traffic volumes along this segment of roadway have increased dramatically over the past few years, the driving surface has many pavement defects due to the water table being too high. Table drains have become ineffective due to changing farming practises. Road needs to be built up to lower the water table.

Upgrade the road formation by adding 350 mm of stabilised road base, this will, in turn, lower the water table and minimise future failures due to excessive moisture in the road pavement. Tie in 18 existing driveways to the new road surface levels, work includes 380M2 of heavy patching , then, renew 26358M2 of driving surface by way of reseal.
