Project Description

The existing road is in poor condition, consisting of less than 100mm of low quality sandstone. The road has severe corrugation and during Winter, large potholes occur regularly and the roadway is subjected to water inundation and is unsafe for the freight of primary produce from the local area. Due to the current road condition only part of this road is currently gazzetted as a B-Double commodity route.

Reconstruction to 1.53 kilometres of Smith Road of the existing unsealed pavement followed by a sealed wearing surface suitable for B-Double vehicles. The existing pavement will be reworked appropriately providing a suitable base to add approximately 260mm of a higher grade pavement material. This will be capped off by a 14/7mm two coat spray seal. The existing road will be reconstructed to a 7m wide seal, with 1m unsealed shoulders in both sides of the road.

Total cost of proposed project is $1,499,411
