Project Description

The existing road has poor drainage and after moderate rainfall the road is inundated with water which causes severe scouring and shoulder damage. As a result there are significant maintenance costs involved.

The work will involve the reconstruction of a 400 metre section of road which will include the reconstruction of the vertical alignment and stabilisation of the newly constructed work. The work is 400 metres long by 12 metres wide.
