The retaining wall at Russell vale

WORK will start this week to repair and replace an ageing retaining wall on the Princes Highway at Russell Vale.

Wollongong City Council will close one north-bound lane of the highway to complete the works, from Nimbin Street to Hicks Street. There will be message boards in place during the rebuild of the ageing wall, which sits on the western side of the highway.

The works includes the installation of new concrete facing in front of the existing retaining wall and the construction of kerb and gutter and a concrete path along the eastern edge of the service road which sits above the wall.

A Council spokesperson said the alterations to the existing footpath at either end of the retaining wall will direct pedestrians to the new path.

Works are expected to take about four months, weather permitting.

For more information contact the Council on (02) 4227 7111.
