Lawrence Hargrave Drive night closure

TRANSPORT for NSW will carry out repairs on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, at Stanwell Tops, between Longview Crescent and the intersection with Lady Wakehurst Drive.

A spokesperson for Transport for NSW said the repairs are necessary to add strength to a section of the road and make it more resilient to future severe weather events, like those experienced last year.

“It is necessary to complete the repairs at this site as soon as possible to ensure the conditions of the road, which was damaged by record-breaking rainfall in 2022, does not get worse,” the spokesperson said.

“We will be completing repairs on a 20m section of the road where a minor landslip created cracking along the road surface.”

Work includes:

  • reinforcing the slope by adding rockfill to replace the material lost in the landslip
  • resurfacing the road 
  • replacing the guardrail.

The repair site is about 500m south of Longview Crescent on Lawrence Hargrave Drive at Stanwell Tops. Work will begin on Sunday April 30 and is expected to be completed on Thursday May 18, weather permitting. Working hours are 8pm and 4am, Sunday to Thursday nights.
