Gwydir highway intersection at Waterview Heights upgraded
Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis announced major improvement work will start on the Gwydir Highway near Waterview Heights to ensure the highway continues to provide a safe and reliable route between Grafton and Glen Innes.
Mr Gulaptis said the intersection of Rogan Bridge Road and the Gwydir Highway at Waterview Heights will be upgraded over the next three months.
“Clarence Valley Council, on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services, will rebuild a 900 metre stretch of the Gwydir Highway near the intersection of Rogan Bridge Road,” he said.
“The road will be widened and new gravel used to form a new road surface.
“Minor improvements such as better kerbs, guttering and safety barriers will also be completed.”
Mr Gulaptis said work will start next Monday, 13 April and weather permitting, be completed by the end of June.
“Work hours will be from 7am to 6pm on weekdays,” he said.
“Access to properties will be maintained at all times and residents will be notified about any temporary access arrangements.
“There will be noise associated with the work but every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents.
“Traffic control will be in place and motorists may experience delays of up to five minutes due to reduced speed limits,” Mr Gulaptis said.
