Tatham Road - Temporary Flood Restoration Works

Council will be completing temporary patching works to improve road surface conditions for Tatham Road during November and December 2022. These works are a temporary measure, until permanent pavement rehabilitation works are scheduled.

Works will apply only to five sections of Tatham Road that have been identified as significantly impacted by the February 2022 natural disaster, based on pre and post disaster assessments. Funding has been secured through Transport for NSW. This funding is allocated to repair damage sustained during the February 2022 natural disaster only. Additional works required and subsequent funding for Tatham Road are being reviewed.

The temporary works are expected to start mid November 2022 – end of December 2022 subject to weather, contractor, and material availability. Single lane traffic control will be in place during the works period.

These temporary works will involve removing damaged road sections and replacing with gravel road base, with an emulsion sacrificial seal.

Future pavement repair works, expected to be carried out in mid-2023 will include:

  • Road surface: Improve the surface of the road in places.
  • Signs and line marking: Line marking and guideposts.
  • Vegetation management: Manage roadside vegetation to remove obstacles, improve sight distances, and clearances for signage.
  • Drainage maintenance: Re-excavate open drains and remove flood sediment as required. Minor drainage works will be completed prior to pavement works commencing.
  • Driveway adjustment: Adjust access to driveways affected by the wider road footprint as required.

Road users are advised to follow signage and expect delays as these works are completed.
