Night works on George Bass Drive

Night works to improve a section of George Bass Drive between Beach Road and Joes Creek, near Batemans Bay High School, begin this month.

Eurobodalla Council will upgrade the road pavement and surface between 6pm and 6am, from Sunday 8 to Thursday 12 November, and Sunday 15 to Thursday 19 November. Minor day works from Wednesday 4 November will prepare the road.

The project will replace the current gravel pavement with a stronger and more water resistant deep-lift asphalt.

Council’s infrastructure director Warren Sharpe said the current pavement was nearing the end of its useful life.

“The new pavement is design to cater for the increasing road traffic using this by-pass route, including heavy vehicles,” he said.

“The new pavement will be 290mm thick and has been designed for a 60-year life. This should reduce the level of maintenance going forward, reducing inconvenience to the community in the future of this high-traffic road.”

Traffic control will be in place for the work and commuters should use Beach Road as an alternate route where possible.

Those using the route to access homes should allow extra time to travel through the area. Every effort will be made to minimise noise but nearby residents may hear heavy machinery operating.

The project has been made possible through Council funds and a $585,000 grant from the NSW Government under the Fixing Local Roads program.
