Major roadworks to begin in Byron Shire tomorrow
A ONE million dollars roadworks project is due to begin in the Byron Shire tomorrow.
Byron Shire Mayor Simon Richardson said the works were part of the local council's Fit for the Future plan.
"The two reconstruction programs are key components of our 2015-16, $20 million capital works program and whilst eagerly awaited by our communities, will have short term traffic impacts," he said.
"We thank our residents and road users for their patience during these essential works."
The Massinger St section of road will be closed between Carlyle and Kipling Sts, including the Massinger St intersections with Marvell and Short Sts.
Road diversions will be in place at:
- Lawson St and Lighthouse Rd near Massinger;
- Massinger south end at Carlyle St (Top Shop);
- Short St;
- Patterson St at Bangalow Rd;
- Carlyle and Tennyson St.
Traffic control and signage will be in place to assist with traffic movements.
Residents in the area will still be able to access their driveways.
The Massinger St roadworks are expected to take about seven weeks and will be completed in time for the Easter holidays, weather permitting.
In the north of the shire a 500 metre southbound section of Tweed Valley Way has been reconstructed with the final seal being placed tomorrow.
Delays of about four minutes can be expected.
Tweed Valley Way southbound lane will remain closed until February 15 to allow time for the seal to cure, with the final asphalt wearing surface being placed that day.
