Road upgrade planned for The Lakes Way, Boolambayte

Published on 20 January 2023


Roadwork is planned for a 3.6km section of The Lakes Way, Boolambayte, from Sawpit Road towards the Pacific Highway.

The upgrade will include widening the road and improving stormwater drainage.

This work will significantly improve road safety and driving conditions, especially in wet weather. It will also help connect local communities across the region and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

The work has been delayed because the original contractor was unable to proceed. Council is currently evaluating alternatives.

A 40kph speed limit has been left in place due to the poor condition of the road.

This work is part of MidCoast Council’s Capital Works Program and is funded by the NSW State Government. To view the Capital Works Program, visit
