Spray sealing is planned for Thursday 8 June. Traffic will be reduced to single lane conditions. This first seal will take approximately two days. The road will have a second seal in October.
Improvements to Lansdowne Road from the roundabout at Manning River Drive to Dawson Cemetery Road will take place March to June 2023, weather permitting.
“This busy commuter route requires a solution to improve safety and driveability. The works will involve improvements to drainage, replacement of the pavement, and new bitumen,” said Executive Manager Transport and Engineering, Peter Gesling.
A formalised bus bay south of the Taree Airport entrance will be constructed to support school buses.
Traffic may be reduced to one lane, which will create delays and impact access to nearby Taree Airport.
Road users are reminded to observe reduced speed limits and temporary traffic arrangements until works are completed.
As with any roadwork, wet weather may delay the project’s completion.
