Reactivating Lismore with markets

Lismore CBD is about to receive a boost with two of its largest markets coming to Lismore’s CBD to help reactivate local economy and sense of community. 

The Banora Point upgrade project team will carry out work near the Darlington Drive roundabout to build a temporary retaining wall in preparation for installing the foundations for the new northbound off ramp, which will pass over Darlington Drive.

The work will take place over four days from today and will be finished by Friday 18 November.

When the work to build the temporary retaining wall is complete, the foundations for the new off ramp will be driven into the soil.

This work will take four days, sometime between Monday 14 and Friday 25 November.

Installing foundations of this kind can create increased levels of noise and vibration, and NSW Roads and Maritime have given an undertaking the work will be carried out only during normal work hours between 7am and 6pm.

The project team will take action to reduce noise and vibration from the activity, including stopping work for breaks and carrying out regular noise and vibration monitoring.

For further information, comments or concerns about the work, the public can contact a toll-free community relations line on 1800 012 611, visit the Pacific Highway website at www.rta.nsw.gov.au/pacific,  or visit the Banora Point upgrade information centre at the Banora Point Upgrade Alliance site office on Link Road, east of the Darlington Drive roundabout.
