Natural disaster road repairs finished
Natural disaster road repairs finished in upper Manning Valley
21 May 2014
Work to repair more than 20 storm affected sites on Nowendoc and Bulga roads in the upper Manning Valley will be completed this week.
Deputy Premier and Member for Oxley, Andrew Stoner said the NSW Government provided almost $5.2 million in natural disaster funding to repair landslips along these roads.
“A 2011 storm which affected the region meant many of these sites were reduced in width and work has restored these sections of road to their previous condition,” Andrew Stoner said.
“At some locations the storm caused the road embankment to wash out and the shoulder to collapse, which affected the stability of the road and resulted in temporary road closures.
“This work has successfully restored the roads to their previous condition and width which is good news for local road users and businesses.
“The first package of work started in October last year and was carried out at nine locations on Nowendoc Road, west of Mount George and one site on Norwood Lane.
“Work then started in November on the remaining 12 sites on Bulga Road between Bobin and Elands.”
"The project is part of Roads and Maritime Services’ commitment to working with the community to deliver safe, efficient and high quality infrastructure and services to the community and businesses of NSW,” Andrew Stoner said.
