Map of road repairs - March 2023

Kiama Council will begin their road repair construction program this year.

The $4.8 million project will repair:

  • Jamberoo Mountain Road
  • Wallaby Hill Road
  • Foxground Road
  • Cliff Drive
  • Gipps Street

All of which were damaged by storms and landslips in 2022.

The designs and works program were developed using an experienced, qualified, geotechnical engineering consultancy recommended by the NSW and Australian Governments.

They were also rigorously reviewed by Kiama Council and Transport for NSW engineers.

Feedback from community members on progress, risks and the designs has also been considered. 

Jamberoo Mountain and Wallaby Hill roads

Council awarded the contact for these works to Civil and Civic Group and RIX Group at the December Ordinary Council Meeting.

The extensive work includes complex repairs at six different locations.

The repairs involve the construction of concrete piles that are anchored into rock to support the road or soil nails to stabilise slopes before the road can be then reconstructed.

Significant preparatory work for the custom-designed concrete piles and soil nails is required prior to installation.

Foxground and Cliff roads, and Gipps street

Council awarded the contact for these roads to GT Civil at the December Ordinary Council Meeting.

Due to relative simplicity of the construction work, the project will commence early this year.
