Council to mend St Albans flood-damaged roads next week after 9 month wait
We got in touch with Hawkesbury Council this week about several roads in the St Albans area which were flood damaged back in February and still hadn’t been repaired, and we have just been told today work will – at last – begin next week.
Repairs to Settlers Road will take around three weeks, says Richard Vaby Council’s Manager, Construction and Maintenance, and the work will begin on Monday, weather permitting.
Upper Macdonald Road will see work at four locations and that will start immediately after Settlers Road works are completed.
St Albans Road repairs will also be carried out from this coming week and are expected to be completed within two weeks, Mr Vaby told the Post.
“Full road closures are not anticipated at this stage and works will proceed with appropriate traffic control measures,” Mr Vaby said.
“Thank you again to the community of the Macdonald Valley for their patience while Council has been seeking approval for the Natural Disaster Funding and planning for the flood damaged repair works in the area.”
