Roadworks on time
THE Hogbin Drive roadworks in Coffs Harbour are in top gear, with the first section now completed.
The stretch between Albany Street and Harbour Drive will be partially opened to traffic tomorrow by noon.
With construction continuing on the new Harbour Drive roundabout and the Barrie Street intersection to the east, traffic flows on the new section will be single-lane each way until that work is done.
And the news gets even better ? the new Harbour Drive roundabout will also be opened to traffic tomorrow, but until the final stages are finished, it will operate initially as a single lane roundabout.
Work on the new roundabout is expected to be com- pleted by late April, when the new section of the Hogbin Drive Extension and the roundabout intersection will be fully opened to traffic.
The remaining Hogbin Drive Extension between Harbour Drive and Orlando Street is due for completion by the end of the year.
The entire project cost was $15 million.
