Road Works:

Kempsey Road Construction

Works on the reconstruction of an existing gravel section of Kempsey Road to a seal from Oaky River Bridge to Oaky River Dam Road have commenced.

The improvement to this 2.3km stretch of Road will continue over the next 6 weeks whilst the weather is still suitable for bitumen sealing to occur. The project will also include the replacement of culverts and upgrade of existing table drains.

Given the complexity of this project due to distance and rocky conditions of the Kempsey Road, concern was raised around original project scoping and budget, additional funding was successfully sourced from Drought Community Program
