Repair work progressing on Cambewarra Mountain
Repairs to landslip damage on Moss Vale Road at Cambewarra Mountain are making positive progress with work going better than expected at one site and work at another two sites due to start next week.
Transport for NSW Regional Director South, Sam Knight, said the latest work will start soon after repairs on a site nearby were completed two weeks ahead of schedule.
“Extensive work is still needed to completely repair Moss Vale Road following last year’s record-breaking rainfall, but work continues to be prioritised as part of the disaster recovery response across the state’s road network,” Ms Knight said.
“Given the nature of the terrain on Cambewarra Mountain, the crew had planned for the worst. Thankfully, the most recent site repaired presented fewer complications than expected, we had ideal weather conditions and there were significantly lower traffic volumes than usual during the work.”
Ms Knight said the next stage of repair work will be carried out between Green Valley Road and the single lane section at Cambewarra Mountain from Monday 5 June to Monday 19 June, weather permitting and excluding the Monday 12 June public holiday.
“This latest work will again engage specialist contractors, who will add strength to the slope above the road by installing soil nails, geomesh and shotcrete, which will help make these sites on Moss Vale Road more resilient to the impacts of future severe weather events,” Ms Knight said.
Work will be carried out between 7am and 5pm on weekdays with reduced speed limits of 40 km/h and traffic control via stop/go in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
Transport for NSW will continue to keep disruptions limited as much as possible and will update the community as work progresses.
