Repair work completed on Lawrence Hargrave Drive landslip ahead of schedule

LANDSLIP repairs on Lawrence Hargrave Drive at Stanwell Tops have been completed ahead of schedule.

A spokesperson for Transport for NSW said its work crews understood how the night time full road closures and day time part closures were causing inconvenience to the local community and made every effort to get the job done as quickly as possible.

“Their efforts paid off with the repairs being finished one week earlier than expected,” the spokesperson said.

“All that is left to finish off is line-marking on the new section of asphalt. Temporary line-marking will be in place until permanent line-marking can be arranged, which we will do as soon as possible.”

The work involved repairing minor landslip damage at a 20m section of the road that occurred during the record-breaking rainfall in March and July last year.

“Our work crews added rockfill to replace the material lost in the landslip before resurfacing the road and replacing the guardrail,” the spokesperson said.

“These repairs have made the section of road more resilient to future severe weather events, like those experienced last year.”
