Repair Work on Big Hill Road, The Oaks

20200212 122647

Torrential rain during February caused havoc across the Wollondilly Shire, with crews working tirelessly to repair damage to the road network to make it safe for drivers.

Big Hill Road, The Oaks suffered significant damage. The road has been closed to traffic since.
A large section of the slope above slid down onto the road and a small section on the outside edge slid away and down the slope.

Planned Works

We are happy to announce that the clean-up works on Big Hill Rd, The Oaks are finished for the time being.

A section of downhill instability due to a damaged culvert has resulted in some broken guardrail that can’t be fixed immediately - we will be working on getting these extra repairs done as soon as we can.

Barriers have been placed around the damaged area and there is a short section of alternating traffic required where motorists will need to Give Way.
