As the new beachfront Aureus community breaks ground, associated roadworks are expected to commence on the Coast Road and Headlands Drive early July. Residents are advised to expect delays, particularly during peak periods such as before and after school.
The works, which have been approved by the Ballina Shire Council, are currently scheduled to take approximately six months.
The Council Consent Approval is for works to be take place between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am and 1pm Saturday.
Drainage under the Coast Road will be undertaken as night works over eight nights early in the project, between the hours of 6pm and 7am Monday to Friday.
The existing southern access into Skennars Head via Headlands Drive will ultimately be closed. This section of road up to just before Killarney Crescent will be remodelled as a car park.
A new southern entrance into Skennars Head will be built immediately across from the entrance to Sharpes Beach. A roundabout here on the Coast Road will facilitate smoother four-way traffic flow. This new road will meet up with Headlands Drive just before Killarney Crescent.
A new underpass will be constructed beneath this new road which will connect by paths to the existing underpass under The Coast Road.
Residents with enquiries regarding the roadworks program are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02 9160 6484.
