Generally, the sheeting was noted to be in relatively poor condition with the sheeting ravelling and forming a loose, rough and dusty surface in dry months, and a slippery surface in the winter months. There are also locations where the sheeting was worn through to sub grade. A number of locations were identified where the drainage was sub-standard with water ponding along the road side and in places crossing the road.

Vegetation Trimming • Vegetation trimming works have been identified along Gillentown Road. Forming of Road and Re-sheeting • Works have been identified along Gillentown Road to ensure its shape and drainage is satisfactory. • Road shaping works will include forming the road side drains to drain to the new culvert locations. • The road will be constructed and sheeted to sub base standard satisfactory for future base coarse and sealing.
