Roadworks begin on Beach Road
Eurobodalla Council will begin work to improve an 80-metre section of Beach Road at Catalina on Monday 15 May.
The works extend from the Country Club Drive traffic lights to the new work completed last year at the Hanging Rock roundabout. The road will be widened and new kerb and guttering and drainage installed.
The road surface will be replaced with asphaltic concrete, which Council says is a stronger and more durable surface than bitumen for busy areas where vehicles are stopping and starting.
A combination of night and day work will be used to complete the six-week project.
During the day, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction. At night, the road will be reduced to one lane with traffic control measures in place.
Council advises that every attempt will be made to keep noise and light nuisance to a minimum during the night works.
Two bus stops within the worksite will be closed for the duration of the project. The nearest bus stops are at Birdland for southbound traffic and The Manor Retirement Village for passengers travelling north. Signs will be installed at the bus stops to notify patrons.
Nearby residents, facilities, schools and Hanging Rock user groups have received a letter from Council explaining the works.
Council encourages motorists to allow extra time when travelling through the area during peak periods, with delays expected.
Motorists are also asked to take extra care around the work and to follow traffic control and speed limit signs. Media Release
