Preparation works have been completed on a number of rural roads in the Lithgow local government area with sealing works to commence this week.
As part of Lithgow City Council’s 2015-16 capital works program:
- Forest Ridge Road, Wallerawang,
- Blackheath Creek Road, Little Hartley,
- Hampton Road, Rydal
- Rydal Road, Wallerawang
Have been identified as requiring work for the safety of road users and better serve the community.
In the past month, Council has been implementing drainage improvements, surface restoration, shoulder repair and subsurface remediation on these roads to prepare them for sealing. As such, in the coming weeks crews and machinery will be on site to seal these sections of road in preparation for the Christmas break.
Residents are urged to note that traffic conditions may change in these areas. Please exhibit caution and patience while travelling through the area.
Upgrading and maintain rural roads to an acceptable standard in accordance with the level of traffic use is part of Council’s Transport Strategy in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
