Council agrees to request from Caroona residents to mitigate dust problem on Williewarina Road

Following receipt of a petition from residents of Caroona, Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) has resolved that when work commences on an upgrade to Williewarina Road, one kilometre of the road from the Coonabarabran end, will be sealed to help manage the dust problem residents encounter during dry periods, caused by heavy truck movements. Williewarina Road connects the Coonabarabran Road with Bundella Road at Pine Ridge.

“Council is currently undertaking a geotechnical investigation, geometric design and pavement design for this project and at this stage believes construction will get under way during the first quarter of 2017,” said LPSC Mayor Councillor Andrew Hope.

“Apart from the one kilometre we’ll seal at the Caroona end, the majority of the work will be undertaken from the Pine Ridge end towards Caroona, to meet best practice criteria to reduce the impact of construction traffic on the life of the asset,” Councillor Hope concluded.
