ROAD users are advised the second stage of the Waterfall Way upgrade at Armidale is expected to start on Monday 11 May with work nearing completion on stage one, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said today.
Mr Marshall said the $1.2 million project aims to improve the road surface of Waterfall Way, known locally as Uralla Road at Armidale.
“Waterfall Way is the main route between Armidale and the Pacific Highway,” Mr Marshall said.
“Work is nearing completion on the first stage of the upgrade near the intersection of the New England Highway.
“A further 400 metre stretch of Waterfall Way joining stage one of the project, including the Moore Park intersection, will be upgraded next.”
Mr Marshall said the detour in place for stage one via Glen Innes Road and Marsh Street will not be required for stage two of the project.
“Traffic control and reduced speed limits will remain in place for the duration of the upgrade and motorists can expect minor delays,” he said.
“The upgrade of stage two is expected to take about one month to complete and motorists are asked to follow all temporary signage.
“Access to properties will be maintained at all times and residents are thanked for their patience.”
The work is being carried out by Armidale Dumaresq Council on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services.
