Commencing Monday, 12 April 2021, Council will be carrying out replacement of six culverts as part of a $2.75 million upgrade to Afterlee Road under the NSW Government’s Fixing Local Roads Program and due to difficult terrain around the sites, it will be necessary to close the road periodically while the works are undertaken.
The culverts are located along a 1.5km section of Afterlee Road, west of the Slaters Road intersection. In order to minimise inconvenience to motorists, Council will carry out the work on a rolling program, replacing the culverts one at a time with the road closed for three working days each week.
Works have been brought forward to take advantage of one week of school holidays to minimise disruption to school bus services.
The attached calendar (link here) shows the days on which Afterlee Road will be closed. These dates were chosen to provide a variety of week days to allow as many options as possible for delivery of services to residents and property owners.
During closures, detours can be made via;
- Brown Knob Road – Cob O Corn Road (20t load limit) – Ettrick Road
- Eden Creek Road -Wyndham Road (7t load limit) – Applegum Road – Wiangaree Back Road
- Dam Access Road – Brays Road – Ghinni Ghi Road – Ironpot Creek Road – Ettrick Road
Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by these road works and thanks motorists for their patience.
