Beach Road works start Tuesday

Published: 11 June 2022

Work starts Tuesday (14 June) to upgrade a busy section of Beach Road in Batehaven, between the Edward Road intersection and Corrigans Beach car park.

Drivers should allow extra travel time, with traffic reduced to single lane in both directions. Traffic control will be in place and Eurobodalla Council expects this first stage of work to take around three weeks to complete.

Work involves removing and replacing the sub-base pavement and laying a new asphalt surface, resulting in a strengthened road that will need fewer repairs and capable of withstanding heavy traffic well into the future.

Businesses and residents in the construction zone have been notified, and large message boards will be in place to warn drivers.

Construction will be completed in two stages, starting Tuesday with the two southbound lanes and followed in August by the two northbound lanes.

During construction the area will operate under traffic control with one side of the road providing a single lane in each direction.

Vehicle access to Corrigans Beach Reserve car park will be restricted to the northern entrance and the playground car park will be closed.

Motorists will be able to access private driveways from either direction, however, parking will not be available along Beach Road between Edward Road and the Corrigans car park.

Pathways on both sides of the road will remain open and pedestrians will need to cross at the traffic lights.

Commuters on Beach Road should allow extra travel time for the next three weeks while the roadwork is underway.

More information about the second stage will be provided ahead of construction starting, scheduled for August.
