Nine of the shire’s roads will receive needed attention to enable them to meet the demands of turning vehicles and reduce ongoing maintenance.
A spokeswoman for the Eurobodalla Shire Council said the roads, including five cul-de-sacs, would be resurfaced with asphaltic concrete to a depth of 30mm.
Cul-de-sacs often require additional upkeep.
“Cul-de-sacs often require additional upkeep because of the tight turning movements of vehicles such as garbage trucks,” she said.
“Contractors Downer will start work next week in the north of the shire at Batman Place in Batemans Bay and proceed south to Moruya to resurface cul-de-sacs at the end of Anderson Street, Jeffery Place, Cheddar Street, Flanagan Place, Native Way in South Head, and Payne Street in Narooma,” she said.
“The work will take half a day in each location. The road surface is trafficable again straight away.”
“Residents living in the programmed streets will receive a notification from Downer in their letterbox one week prior to work starting,” the council spokeswoman said.
Meanwhile work continues on the Princess Highway at Coila and Turlinjah, weekdays between 7am and 5pm, until June 19.
Work involves tree clearing and trimming near Coila Lake and Smarts Creek Bridge to improve sight distances for motorists and prevent branches from falling on the road. Motorists should allow five minutes extra travel time and obey traffic controllers.
