A lot happening behind scenes

WORK is progressing on the Banora Point upgrade with excavation, bridge construction and extension work all scheduled to take place during the coming weeks.

A New South Wales Road Traffic Authority spokesman said while there were no major traffic changes scheduled for the next two weeks, many smaller projects would be carried out.

“There will be continuing work on the Minjungbal Dr extension and Darlington Dr intersection; continuing work on Lake Kimberley culverts; continuing excavation and the start of blasting work at Sexton Hill; and work will continue on the eastern side of the southern interchange, north of Barneys Point bridge,” the spokesman said.

“Work on retaining walls on the western side of the Pacific Highway adjacent to Pioneer Pde, will continue; work will start on a minor realignment of the existing Pacific Hwy adjacent to Pioneer Pde and work will also start on the southbound section of the road and the southbound on and off ramps at the northern interchange.

“Work will continue on Minjungbal Dr and Darlington Dr bridges, continuing work to build viaduct bridges at Sexton Hill and the installation of a new traffic monitoring system south of Barney's Point bridge.”

The RTA spokesman said all work on the Banora Point upgrade work was subject to weather conditions, which could alter the schedule.
