Slope stabilising work on Alpine Way near Khancoban completed
28 June 2017
A section of slope alongside Alpine Way which is known for being prone to rock falls and landslides has been stabilised to provide improved safety for all road users in a cooperative effort led by Roads and Maritime Services.
Member for Albury, Greg Aplin said the NSW Government provided $1.2 million for the work to stabilise the slope at Youngal near Khancoban, to decrease the incidence of rock falls and landslides and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.
“Roads and Maritime carried out the work, which involved stabilising the slope with concrete surfacing and installing protective mesh,” Mr Aplin said.
“The nature of slope stabilisation work requires detailed planning and coordination to manage the steep work environment.
“The project team worked closely with National Parks and Wildlife Services staff from Kosciuszko National Park to ensure best practice was followed to protect the sensitive environment of the work site.
“Thanks to detailed design and efficient project management, the work has been completed before the wet winter period and to budget.
“Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience during this important road safety improvement work,” Mr Aplin said.
