George Bass Drive reopening nears

George Bass Drive at Grandfathers Gully, Lilli Pilli, is scheduled to reopen to traffic by Thursday 23 December.

Eurobodalla Council’s infrastructure services director Warren Sharpe OAM said the major project was moving rapidly toward completion, with sealing of the first two sections completed this week.

“The ongoing wet weather continues to be problematic for road construction,” Mr Sharpe said.

“Following the further heavy rain expected this week, we will prepare the central section of the project and the Denise Drive intersection for sealing and line-marking, which we hope to be complete before the opening date.”

Mr Sharpe said the finishing touches would be completed in the new year when the road is open to traffic.

He thanked residents impacted by the closure for their patience, including those on the temporary bypass road.

“Once complete this major route upgrade will provide improved safety, resilience and capacity to service the northern growth corridor in Eurobodalla,” Mr Sharpe said.

“While the road has been closed, we have also reused excess material from the central cut to widen the fill embankments along George Bass Drive near Carramar Drive and Lilli Pilli Road to make that section of the road safer too.”
