Council splashes $720,000 to repair roads on border

NINE weeks of road works are scheduled to begin on Monday at Point Danger to replace and improve the road pavement.

The $720,000 project will fix the road pavement in Hill St and Tweed Terrace and will include new line marking to better define the intersection and improve traffic flows.

Tweed Shire Council's senior construction engineer Nigel Dobson said some of the badly damaged kerb and guttering would also be replaced during the work.

"Slight improvements to the kerb alignment will also be made to improve parking in the location without impacting the size of the park," Mr Dobson said.

A 600m section of Dry Dock Rd in Tweed Heads, from the Pacific Hwy overpass to Sullivan St, is also being reconstructed this week.

The $430,000 project will stabilise the badly deteriorated section of road.

The stabilisation process is scheduled to take a week, before the road will be resealed early next week.

A length of Greenway Dr in South Tweed Heads, from the Pacific Hwy overpass to the Harvey Norman store, will also be reconstructed starting on February 17, weather permitting.

Traffic will be restricted to alternating flows of traffic during each of these projects.
