Cloth­iers slip fix near

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

Work to re­pair the ma­jor land­slip on Cloth­iers Creek Road will start on Mon­day 30 April and last for about five weeks, weather per­mit­ting.

The ex­ist­ing 4.5-tonne weight limit on the road will re­main in force un­til the re­pairs have been com­pleted.

The one-lane traf­fic flow through the slip area will re­main un­der the man­age­ment of the tem­po­rary traf­fic lights that have been in place since the March 2017 flood. Mo­torists should ex­pect de­lays of up to 10 min­utes be­tween traf­fic light changes at times.

Con­trac­tor Aus­tralian Marine and Civil Pty Ltd will drill large soil nails into the down slope em­bank­ment and then ap­ply shotcrete to sta­bilise the slope be­fore re­pair­ing the road and re­plac­ing the guardrail.

Work­ers will be on site from 7am to 6pm Mon­day to Fri­day and from 7am to 3pm on Satur­days.
