It includes improving stormwater management, widening Wongawilli Road, building a shared path on the northern side of the road and landscaping from the Wongawilli mine entrance to the Shone Avenue intersection.

    Cartage of material into the Wongawilli subdivision has finished for now until about mid-November. A further 2 weeks of cartage may occur from then until the end of the year. The reduction of heavy vehicle movements through the village will improve conditions for residents, our workers and local traffic.

    We’ll be undertaking night works this Thursday night 22 October to investigate raising the level of Sydney Water lids at the Smiths Lane and Wongawilli Road intersection. We’ll need to raise these lids to match the level of the new road pavement we’ll be constructing as part of the project. Works will be completed outside of peak traffic hours under traffic control. You may hear some construction noise however the investigations are not expected to take long.

    We've been working hard to temporarily restore two-way access to Wongawilli this Friday 16 October 2020. We’ve heard from the community how important this is and we tasked Cadifern to construct these interim road pavement sections to make two-way access possible. We’ll need to revert to one-way traffic again towards the end of the year for a few days to install the remaining stormwater structures. The final road pavement will be built after this.
