MidCoast Council road crews are preparing to rehabilitate a 585m section of Beach Street, between Pacific Place and Wards Gully Bridge in Harrington.
Kicking off in the first half of March, the works will take place over a six-week period, weather-permitting, and involve stabilising the existing road pavement, rehabilitating the surface and finishing with an asphalt seal.
The section of Beach Street undergoing these improvement works will be reduced to a single lane while the work is being carried out, between 7am and 5pm on weekdays (with two-way traffic being restored outside these hours). Traffic control and reduced speed limits will remain in place for the duration of the works.
Full road closures may be required at times, when an alternate detour route will be made available and clearly signposted. In addition, access to properties located within the work zone may be restricted at times, and on-site crews will liaise with affected residents as this occurs to minimise disruption.
Motorists are asked to obey all signage and directions from road crews, observe speed restrictions, and travel with caution in the area. Short delays can be expected while the work is undertaken.
"As the main road into and out of Crowdy Head and Harrington, Beach Street carries a high volume of traffic, especially during busy holiday periods", said Daniel Park, MidCoast Council's Manager of Operations (north).
"This project will not only provide motorists with a smoother and safer driving surface, the final asphalt seal offers durability that extends the life of the road, minimising on-going maintenance requirements".
