Project Description

The existing bitumen is at four metres wide, the exiting gravel at the edge of the bitumen gets blown away leaving a ledge caused by heavy traffic use and exposure to wet weather. This is dangerous to vehicles and heavy trucks using the road. Dust created by vehicles in front is dangerous to vehicles behind by reduced visibility. Stones flicked by vehicles on the gravel sections onto windscreens is a regular occurrence on this road.

It is proposed to form and shape up the existing road to allow for the correct crossfall. 300mm new gravel pavement will be added to the formation and bitumen sealed to 6.2m wide. Existing table drains and road shoulder will be regraded to allow controlled drainage of storm water.

Total cost of proposed project is $1,000,000
