Cassowary Coast Regional Council will resume road rehabilitation works on Wongaling Beach Road, between Tully-Mission Beach Road and Coolibah Street, recommencing stage one of the project today on the 22 June.

The planned works will involve removing the worn asphalt surface, excavating the existing road layers, importing new road material before construction of a new asphalt surface and installation of line marking.

Asset Sustainability portfolio holder Councillor Barry Barnes said the Council has a focus on continual improvement to our community assets and ensuring community safety.

“Through this upgrade, Wongaling Beach Road will see much improved road conditions for the travelling public, along with new line markings to increase safety.

“The road has been deteriorating over the past years and receiving continuous quick fixes so this project comes at a time when it is most needed,” said Councillor Barnes.

“The project is anticipated to be completed within three stages across four weeks. The project did begin earlier this month, however due to prolonged wet weather it was slightly pushed back. Council wishes to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Council has advised work will generally be carried out between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday and there will be increased heavy vehicle traffic movement in the project area as the site is established and large machinery is brought in to renew the road.

There will be temporary lane closures, with traffic controllers and traffic lights present to assist in managing traffic around the site.

During the works, motorists can expect to see periods of excavation up to half a meter and heavy machinery working close to the travel lane.

Reduced speed limits will apply to keep motorists and construction workers safe. Motorists are urged to obey all roadwork signs and directions for their own safety and the safety of our team.

During construction it is likely that access to properties along Wongaling Beach Road will be affected for short durations. Council’s project team will contact impacted residents and business owners where necessary to discuss specific requirements and make alternative arrangements for parking or access during these times.

This project is fully funded by the Cassowary Coast Regional Council.
