Eurobodalla Shire Council will be asphalting Beach Road in scheduled night work next week, between Batemans Bay Marina and Club Catalina as part of a larger upgrade to improve safety on the road. The resurfacing will take place at night to reduce disruption to motorists.

Eurobodalla Shire Council’s works divisional manager Tony Swallow said residents can expect some heavy machinery noise at night between Tuesday, 9 June, and Friday, 12 June. Traffic control will be in place during this time.

“The resurfacing is part of a larger project to make Beach Road safer,” said Mr Swallow. “The community can expect disruptions in that area until at least September.

“Motorists can expect two-lane closures – one in each direction – until September and should allow extra time to travel through the area safely.

“Pedestrians and cyclists will also be impacted as we do staged upgrades to water mains on both sides of the road.”

Both the footpath on the inland side and the shared pathway on the sea side will be closed periodically. Pedestrians and cyclists may have to travel across grass or gravel sections, or be diverted around works, and may need to wait or be escorted through some sections.

Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should observe all signs and directions.

Further information on the Beach Road upgrade is available at the Eurobodalla Shire Council’s website.
