Lengthy roadworks on Waterfall Way begin
IMPROVEMENT work on the Waterfall Way at Nut Farm started today.
Deputy Premier, Andrew Stoner, announced the stretch of road about 8km west of Bellingen is being repaired after damage beside the road was caused by a landslip earlier this year.
"The $4 million allocated by the O'Farrell-Stoner Government will repair two sections of the road embankment to help prevent future damage and keep the road open after extreme weather events," Mr Stoner said.
"The work scheduled to start is expected to be completed by the end of February next year.
"Roads and Maritime Services inform me that repairing Waterfall Way and improving access is a priority here on the Mid-North Coast."
Motorists are advised of alternating traffic conditions and short delays between 7am and 6pm each day for about eight months while this work is carried out.
Wet weather may change dates and times.
Every effort will be made to minimise any noise associated with the work.
Traffic management and reduced speed limits will be in place where needed to ensure the safety of workers, motorists and other road and water users.
