Project Description

The Road has sharp crests and bends through 3.25 kilometres of breakaway country. It becomes quite corrugated as traffic tends to slow at the crests and bends and then accelerate coming out of them.

The work proposes to lower the crests and widen the bends between straight line kilometre 4 and straight line kilometre 7.25 south from the intersection with Butchers Track and then re-form and re-sheet. There are currently six floodways through that section of breakaway, two of which have culverts. It is proposed to add culverts to another three of the floodways. The resheet/reseal has gone well over budget and so it is proposed that the seven metre bitumen seal will be delayed until November/December 2016, when it is warmer and to tie in with two other jobs to get economy of scale.
