Kiama Council has reopened Jamberoo Mountain Road with a 40km/h speed zone in place through the repaired areas, while Council undertakes the remaining minor works.
Kiama Council will begin their road repair construction program this year.
The $4.8 million project will repair:
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.
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.
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.
