No potholes on bypass: Council
THE new Piggabeen Road bypass is near completion and Tweed Shire Council workers have been working around the clock.
The council have put on extra crew to kerb and gutter a section near the Jehovah's Witness Church and rebuilt the driveway to ensure the attendees have safe access to this weekend's services.
A spokeswoman from the council said the road was currently open to one lane of traffic during work hours as council crews undertook construction of the connection of the old road to the new bypass.
“The bitumen surface is temporary to allow for potential settlement to occur as a result of the new water and sewer mains recently installed underground,” the spokesperson said.
“An inspection has been carried out of the road after council received calls and there is not a single pothole.”
