Current works

Completion timeframes of current works listed below are subject to weather conditions.

We will make every effort to minimise disruptions to traffic, parking and pedestrians during work times.

To help work run as smoothly as possible, we ask pedestrians and motorists to follow any signage and traffic control measures.

Road works

Long Beach, Cullendulla Drive

Work: Reconstruction and shoulder widening of Cullendulla Drive from the Princes Highway to Kettle Road.

The old surface was ripped up in October and base gravel was imported and placed on the newly widened road. The road has now been sealed with the first coat of bitumen.

Guide posts are being installed and temporary line marking will soon be applied.

The road will be sweep shortly to remove any loose stones.

Both lanes are now open to traffic, however the speed limit will be 40km/h until works are complete.

Restoration of off-road areas has been undertaken with work on batters, table drains and access to properties complete.

We will return in April to apply the second bitumen seal coat followed by permanent line-marking.

When these works are completed the 800m section of Cullendulla Drive will have two 3.5m wide traffic lanes with 2m wide shoulders, providing the community with improved road safety.

This project is funded by the Australian Government's Bridges Renewal Program ($202,021), the State Government's Restart NSW Program ($668,204) and Council's Capital Works Program ($385,400).

Timeframe: 19 April to the end of November 2018, weather permitting.

Tomakin, George Bass Drive & Tomakin Road

Work:  A roundabout is being built at the intersection of George Bass Drive and Tomakin Road. Sunpatch Parade will be realigned and connected to the roundabout providing a new entrance into Tomakin village.

Changed traffic conditions until mid-December: Traffic on George Bass Drive has been reduced to one lane through the worksite operating under traffic control. The work is causing significant delays and motorists are advised to seek alternative routes where possible. Commuters who cannot avoid the area should allow extra time to travel through the area.

This project is made possible by a $3.5 million grant received from the Australian Government's Building Our Future Program.
