Tree removal work along the Kings Highway at Clyde Mountain is now complete, almost eight weeks ahead of schedule.
Ideal weather conditions and continual work improvements allowed crews to safely remove over 400 trees earlier than anticipated.
Low traffic volumes due to Covid-19 regional lockdowns also allowed crews to revise their schedule and continue work through school holidays to minimise the impact of the closure.
The Kings Highway between Misty Mountain Road and River Forest Road is now open to traffic with no further full closures during the day.
Transport for NSW will now transition into slope stabilisation work which is required as part of the next stage of the Natural Disaster Recovery program
Slope work will consist of installing soil nails and shotcrete to stabilise the downslopes at four locations, as well as some rock-bolting of the up-slopes.
There will be changed traffic conditions during the slope stabilisation work however there will be no full road closure during the day. We will inform community and motorists of any traffic changes prior to work starting in early November.
