MidCoast Council contractors have made the most of improved weather over the last two weeks at The Lakes Way roadworks in South Forster.
Large culverts have been constructed, and concreting for the first stage of the roundabout is complete.
The roundabout, which is just south of the culvert, will connect the new Palm Lake Resort and the future extension of The Southern Parkway.
Along with widening the road between Tea Tree Road and Sweet Pea Road, these roadworks will improve road safety around the resort.
Traffic will be diverted onto the new stretch of road in late August under temporary traffic controls.
Council’s contractors are doing the work in phases to allow for two lanes to remain open as often as possible during the works. Road users should take care when travelling through the worksite, obey all traffic directions and speed limits, and be ready for changed traffic conditions.
The roadworks are expected to finish late 2022, weather permitting.
This work is part of MidCoast Council’s Capital Works Program https://www.midcoast.nsw.gov.au/Roads/Major-road-projects/Capital-works-program
