Rehabilitation works on First Ridge Road, Smiths Lake are scheduled to begin Tuesday 30 May.

These works include stabilisation and reshaping of the existing road surface and a two-coat bitumen spray seal. The work crew will return several weeks later to sweep and remove any excess stones that did not adhere to the bitumen.

Roadwork will begin at the Macwood Road intersection and extend 575 metres along First Ridge Road. Council has notified residents who will be directly impacted by the works.

Partial road closures will be in place, with heavy vehicles on site. Traffic controllers will assist residents to access their properties.

Street parking will not be possible. Residents and visitors who park on the affected section of First Ridge Road are advised to seek alternative parking from the evening of Monday 29 May.

Garbage collection is scheduled to take place prior to 7am on Tuesday 30 May.

Roadworks will be complete by Monday 5 June, weather permitting.

These improvements are part of Council’s $7.5 million roads program, aimed at minimising the need for repeat maintenance across our road network. For further details on the program, visit
