Multiple Council roadworks set for Tea Gardens Hawks Nest

Clear evidence of the need for roadworks along Myall Street, at the Boston Street corner.

MULTIPLE necessary roadworks will soon begin at several key locations around Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest, and MidCoast Council wishes to advise motorists to be realistic about parking and traffic, starting from 18 March, weather permitting.

“Road resurfacing works will begin in Tea Gardens, with two sections of Myall Street being repaired, as well as a section on Tuloa Avenue in Hawks Nest, and minor work along Viney Creek Road,” a Council spokesperson told NOTA.

“Council staff are asking that residents think about where they park so that work can get started.”

Residents are requested not to park on the sections of road the night prior to work being conducted.

“There may be delays in driveway access during this period.”

The Myall Street works will stretch along the main access road in and out of town, from 18 Myall Street to 74 Myall St, and between Hough and Maxwell Streets.

The longer section will very likely impact traffic in and out of Myall Quays at Boston Street corner, Penn Estate at Penn Drive, and Coupland and Motum Avenues, and Council has advised that there could be short delays.

It is realistic to expect that traffic control will have flow-on effects at the Settlers Way corner, and perhaps even as far as Myall Quays Boulevard corner, the entrance to the Coles shopping complex.

In Hawks Nest, the work will be on the busy interval along Tuloa Avenue between the corners of Kingfisher and Sanderling Avenues, which is the main corner most motorists use coming in from the Singing Bridge.

Viney Creek Road, the dirt road access to/from the Pacific Highway, has already seen commencement of reconstruction of 750 metres of road.

“Viney Creek Road works include placing gravel overlay and stabilisation, followed by sealing with a width of six metres, due to stabilise on 12 and 13 March, seal planned for 14 and 15 March, weather permitting,” is Council’s official detail.

“All works will be done under traffic control with minimal disruptions to traffic.”
