Installation of Guardrails at Broughton Pass will begin Monday 17 July

Alert issued 13/07/2017 3:56pm

Wollondilly Shire Council would like to advise that the installation of guardrails on the recently re-opened Broughton Pass will commence on Monday 17 July.

The installation will take up to three weeks and will be scheduled between the hours of 7am to 5pm.

Council will aim to minimise the disruption to traffic and will keep the bridge open, with traffic control, while works take place.

Traffic control is required to ensure safety of motorists and workers. Some delays of up to 15 minutes are expected which will be scheduled to avoid peak commute times.

These works are an important step in completing the repair works resulting from the significant weather event in June 2016. Council thanks the community for their cooperation during this time.

Cubbitch Barta Reserve – Timber Structures

Alert issued 30/05/2017 11:22am

Due to the discovery of termite damage to a number of the timber structures throughout the reserve, Council recently closed ‘Bridge 2’ and engaged an independent engineering assessment of all the timber structures throughout the reserve. This report has identified a number of issues to be addressed with Bridges 1, 2 and 3 plus the boardwalk, and as a result Council has closed these structures until these issues can be rectified.

Termite treatment has commenced for all structures and an inspection will be carried out in 3 weeks to check its effectiveness and requirements for additional treatment. The maintenance issues will be rectified after the termite treatments have ceased as other works can disrupt the treatment and reduce its effectiveness. These works will be prioritised and likely to occur during June/July.
