Dry Plains Road getting major upgrade

From mid-May 2024, Council is sealing a currently-unsealed 4.8km section of Dry Plains Road, thanks to funding received from the NSW Government's Fixing Local Roads program and the Australian Government's Roads to Recovery program.

Works are scheduled to commence later this month and be completed by December 2024, weather permitting.

The project will be carried out in three stages, with Stage 3 commencing first:

  • Stage 1: Sealing from the end of the current sealed section to approximately 50m before Slacks Creek culvert
  • Stage 2: Sealing from 80m past Slacks Creek to around the 4.8km mark
  • Stage 3: Upgrading the Slacks Creek culvert to new box culverts

This long-awaited upgrade will significantly improve safety and accessibility on Dry Plains Road. Council thanks residents in advance for their patience during the upcoming roadworks, and reminds all motorists to drive to the conditions, follow traffic control directions, and expect some delays while work is underway.

Dry Plains Road residents, local Rural Fire Service brigades, and other key stakeholders will be directly notified by the Contractor about further details on this project, its timing, and expected effects on their operations in the area.

Council is proud to be able to deliver this important infrastructure project for our community, with the support of the NSW and Australian Governments. We appreciate the funding commitment that has made these vital works possible.
