Milton and Mollymook road repairs

Milton and Mollymook are absolutely bustling over the summer break with local roads under enormous pressure with the influx of visitors and locals getting out and about.

While the Shoalhaven region continues to recover from the 2022 natural disasters, work has just wrapped up on Matron Porter Drive in Milton, with repairs on Tallwood Avenue in Mollymook Beach just beginning.

Shoalhaven Mayor Amanda Findley said it was a good start to the new year with progress being made on local roads.

“Matron Porter Drive and Tallwood Avenue are two key roads that connect the Milton township with Mollymook beach so it’s important to get them back in good condition,” said Cr Findley.

“I know that locals will be very happy to have normal speeds resumed and a more pleasant drive between home and amenities.”

While a portion of resurfacing work on Matron Porter Drive was carried out early last year, the past week has seen repairs completed all the way from the Princes Highway to the Frogs Holla sporting complex. Works include:

· ripping up 250 metres of the existing road

· replacing with fresh asphalt in layers

· line marking to be carried out soon.

Tallwood Avenue works have started and will continue until Wednesday 8 February, weather permitting. Works involve:

· ripping up 230 metres of the existing material

· deep lift asphalt placement.

“With major landslips last year and so much destruction it has taken time for us to get to some smaller streets, so I’m thrilled that we’re improving connectivity and seeing progress in the southern part of the region,” said Cr Findley.
