Here's a look at the SRV-funded works we're planning for 2020:
We're getting Pound Street ready for the anticipated increase in traffic flow it will see when the new Grafton Bridge opens in 2020. The asphaltic concrete (AC) surface requires renewal between Villiers Street and Prince Street.
The work totalling $544,000 will involve milling off the existing AC surface and replacing it with the new surface.
Resealing a road is a two step process, with preparation work commencing the year preceding the reseal.
Over the next 12 months you’ll see reseal preparation work totalling $486,800 in Rsl Lane in Yamba, Through and Tyson Streets in South Grafton, and Plain Station Road in Mookima Wybra.
By 2020 we're planning to seal over 2km of Swallow Road and also 6km of Kangaroo Creek Rd from Armidale Road. This work will be completed in October – December 2019 and totals $371,000.
We're planning to reconstruct and widen a 2.2km section of Old Glen Innes Road, located generally between Oneils Road and Chillumbarringa Road. This is a continuation of other widening works undertaken on Old Glen Innes Road over previous years.
There has been some erosion on Yamba Road at Shallow Channel that requires rock armouring to stabilise the road embankment.
The guardrail near Oyster Channel Bridge requires some repair and upgrade to bring it up to current standards.
There is also some deterioration of the road pavement approaching Oyster Channel. We’ll be undertaking this work in 2020 and have allocated $155,000 in SRV funds.
The timber superstructure on Burnt Hut Creek Bridge on Bald Hills Road has deteriorated to the point that it needs replacing. We plan to replace the timber deck and girders with a concrete deck. The existing concrete abutments are in good condition and will be retained. The budget for this work is $232,000.
There has been concern expressed over a number of years about the lack of pedestrian access along Pacific Parade in Yamba. We’ve allocated $50,000 to design a shared walkway through Agar Park and connecting to the lower part of Pacific Parade.
The available road reserve area does not allow for a pathway to be constructed beside the road.
