Battery Road pavement rehabilitation and safety upgrade commences

Jan 22, 2020

As part of the $1,086,000 NSW Drought Stimulus Package, Hilltops Council are completing road pavement rehabilitation and safety upgrades to Battery Road located in the northern end of the Hilltops Local Government Area, in close proximity to the border of Cowra Shire.

Works include culvert widening, drainage and pavement upgrades which will result in the road being sealed equipped for heavy vehicles, a reduction in dust and improved safety and productivity.

“These much needed upgrades to improve safety and increase heavy vehicle productivity will be of great benefit to the community and I thank the NSW Government for their support to deliver these improvements,” said Hilltops  Mayor Brian Ingram.

Drainage work will commence Tuesday 28 January 2020 and will be completed prior to 30 June 2020. The  work site will run from the intersection of Bennett Springs Road along Battery Road for 4.8km.

Traffic control will be in place however the road will remain open to traffic throughout the works.

Council are proud to announce that all funding received for this project is being spent locally.
