North Orange Bypass
Works on filling the road shoulders were undertaken by Council’s contractor on the section from Ophir Road to Icely Road. Adjustments were also made to the wire rope safety barrier to ensure compliance with the new pavement heights.
All kerb and gutter works have now been completed and the first stage of the sealing has been completed over the full length of the job. Asphalt surfacing will be applied in May.
Works began in April on the upgrading of the first of three sections of Forest Road. Council’s contractor is undertaking initial works around the first section near Ginns Road and will then move on to the Orchard Road to Evergreen Lane portion. A separate contractor has been engaged to begin work in late April on a third section from Kelly Lane to Gander Road, just east of the primary school.
Wentworth Lane / Woodward Street Intersection
Concrete base and wearing surfacing has now been completed on the eastern side of the roundabout. Work will switch over to the western side in May with traffic moving across to the eastern side and restricted movements put in place into Wentworth Lane.
