August 2017 Community Update

Please be aware that this report is presented as information only and that all works are subject to prevailing weather conditions. Some/all works listed below may be adversely affected by weather conditions.

Roadworks

Road Construction
Road construction works will be undertaken on Scotts Head Road, Way Way.
 
Road Rehabilitation
During the rehabilitation process and after the completion of initial pavement works, the road is bitumen sealed within 5 days.

The first seal (primer) remains in place for a period of 2 – 3 months before the final seal is applied.  This allows the contractor to observe any defects in the road pavement such as compaction failures, etc., preventing water ingress and also acts as a dust suppressant.  The following roads are currently undergoing rehabilitation and the final seal is anticipated to be done in October 2017, weather permitting:
