Project Description

This section of the Wantabadgery Road was constructed in excess of 60 years ago. It is a narrow 5m wide seal with a vertical and horizontal alignment of a poor standard which does not meet any of the design criteria for a road required by the modern travelling public. The fourth culvert on the road is an inadequate drainage structure that requires replacement.

It is proposed to re-construct a further 1km of the Wantabadgery Road to a 6m wide seal with 1m gravel shoulders. The vertical and horizontal alignment will be designed to an 80 kph standard. The work will include a new drainage structure consisting of a 3-cell 2.1m x 1.5m high box culvert. This structure will enable the road to stay open in a one in one hundred year flood event with the culvert structure handling a one in fifty year event, and the road surface carrying the excess water to a maximum depth of 150mm.

Total cost of proposed project is $600,961
