Heathcote Road Safety Project Engadine

The NSW Government is jointly funding this project as part of the $300 million Gateway to the South Program and the NSW Safer Road Program to improve road safety.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services sought feedback from the community and stakeholders in March 2017 on a proposed night work construction schedule for work on Heathcote Road, Engadine.

After considering feedback received, we have decided to proceed with the proposed schedule, working up to five nights a week for six weeks. However, following recent investigations, additional work has been identified in this project’s scope which will extend the project to nine weeks.

Additional work is required to improve safety and stabilise the slope along Heathcote Road, including removing trees and vegetation, concrete work, drainage and maintenance repairs. This work will take a further three weeks to complete in addition to the proposed schedule. Carrying out this additional work would allow us to complete the project as quickly as possible to minimise the disruption period for the local community and road users.

If you have further feedback on the additional work, please send your comments by Monday 29 May.
