Recent rain has delayed the completion of Lighthouse Road works; however, the good news from Council is that the boardwalk will re-open on Friday 23 December – just in time for visitors during the holiday season.
The road isn’t that far behind being completed, according to Byron Shire Council’s executive manger of community infrastructure, Phil Holloway.
‘Work will resume on the road on Friday 6 January and it is expected to take around a couple of weeks,’ he said in a statement. ‘Landscaping will also occur during this time.’
At a cost of $2.9 million, the Lighthouse Road works include the construction of a reinforced soil slope, reconstruction of elevated boardwalk and site re-vegetation and restoration.
The Lighthouse Road restoration works are a result of a major landslip on 30 June 2005, which saw the road and walkway collapse.
