Project Description

The section to be stabilised has required heavy maintenance over the previous 3-4 years with the road consisting of asphalt patches of various ages. The remaining section to be resealed has polished aggregate and shows signs of early oxidisation

This is a 3 stage project. Stage 1 is to fix road side batters on the “Sand Hill” crest that continually fill road side drains. The batters are too steep and will be flattened to a more suitable grade by acquiring land from the adjoining property. Stage 2 is to perform in-situ lime stabilisation from the “Sand Hill” crest, 550 metres north-west. Once this is completed a 100mm overlay will be placed on the lime stabilised layer then a 14mm sprayed seal to finish off. Stage 3 is to reseal Saltwater River Road from Littles road to the end of the stabilised section which is approximately 2 kilometres long. This will require standard reseal preparations such as asphalt patches and fixing edge breaks. A 7mm reseal will be done to complete the project

Total cost of proposed project is $275,014
