Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall inspecting the Waterfall Way road surface at Ebor this week before the $600,000 upgrade works commence.
THE uneven and rutted Waterfall Way road surface in the village of Ebor will undergo a $600,000 upgrade from next week, improving safety for motorists, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall announced today.
Mr Marshall said essential improvement works would be carried out on a 700-metre stretch of the Waterfall Way in Ebor between the Guy Fawkes River and Pipeclay Street.
He said the project, which is being carried out on behalf of NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) by Armidale Dumaresq Council, would get underway on Tuesday, 6 October.
“Waterfall Way is a significant road for our region, providing a critical link between Armidale and the Pacific Highway and the coast, for tourists, freight and other motorists,” Mr Marshall said.
“This important road upgrade will be completed by December, weather permitting.
“Work will be carried out on weekdays from 7am to 6pm with traffic control in place to guide motorists safely through the work site.
“Motorists should plan their trip, allow extra travel time and follow all signs, including reduced speed limits.
“Temporary lane closures will be in place during work for the safety of road users and workers and every effort will be made to minimise noise and vibration associated with the work.”
Mr Marshall said the project came on the back of a $1.7 million upgrade project late last year, which saw the reconstruction of a section of Waterfall Way 1.5 kilometres west of Ebor to the Guyra Road intersection.
“I’m very pleased to see another section of Waterfall Way being improved and I will continue to lobby the government for further funds to be spent improving this important strategic route,” he said.
