Tree replacement and road maintenance on Port Hacking Road from Miranda to Sylvania
26 February 2013
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will carry out a tree replacement and road upgrade project on Port Hacking Road between Melrose Avenue at Sylvania and Kareena Road at Miranda.
“RMS engaged an aborist to assess the health of trees along Port Hacking Road to assess how motorist and pedestrian safety could be improved,” an RMS spokesperson said.
“The aborist found thirteen trees need to be removed due to infection or poor location.
“RMS will remove thirteen ill or misaligned trees and trim low hanging trees which present a danger to motorists and pedestrians and upgrade bicycle grates to improve safety for pedestrians and motorists on Port Hacking Road.
Sutherland Shire Council will replant forty five trees along both sides of a 250m long section of road between property number 205 to 215 on Port Hacking Road.
Sutherland Shire Mayor Kent Johns Sutherland Shire Council is pleased to be working with RMS to further beautify the Shire.
“Improving the presentation of the Shire is a new Council policy that I am very keen to see implemented," Mayor Johns said.
Work will be carried out from Friday 1 March for four weeks, weather permitting from 8pm to 5am.
Some minor work such as replacing grates with bicycle safe grates will be carried out on weekdays between 10am to 3pm.
