Fix one road and destroy another

Dear Beagle Editor,

Please find attached below three photos showing significant damage to Carramar Drive, Lilli Pilli. A damaged section was repaired not long ago but is now disintegrating again. There is a lot more damage to the road than these photos show.

Traffic is heavier because of the detour due to the ongoing work on George Bass Drive. No-one from the appropriate council department seems interested. Are we surprised?!

Kind regards

L Martin

Lilli Pilli

Above: George Bass Drive at Grandfathers Gully, near Lilli Pilli, is set to reopen to traffic a week later than initially thought. Eurobodalla Shire Council says there were delays early in the major road safety upgrade project after hard rock was encountered during the earthworks, and rain throughout spring caused further delays. The final day of road sealing is scheduled for Monday December 20, after which line marking will start. Council initially announced the road would be open to traffic by December 17 but now anticipates the road will be open by Thursday December 23, with a reduced speed limit of 60km/h. Until then, motorists are advised to use the temporary detour via the Link Road, Ridge Road and Tallgums Way. The Eurobodalla Council Director of Infrastructure, Warren Sharpe has told 2EC the temporary detour has been working well. "Extending the road closure allows construction to safely continue to completion, without the need to manage high loads of traffic through a very busy jobsite," Mr Sharpe said. George Bass Drive is a critical regional transport route and the section of road with several tight bends between Grandfathers Gully and Denise Drive has a poor history of road crashes.
