ROAD CLOSURE- TARRANTS GAP ROAD 11-30 JUNE 2019
 
Under the Roads to Recovery Program, Hilltops Council has received funding for the upgrade of the causeway over Maryamma creek on the Tarrant’s Gap Rd approximately 2.8km from the Darby’s Falls Rd intersection.
 
The works for this upgrade will include the removal of the existing concrete causeway and replacement with a new concrete bridge. This will allow residents full access to this road under heavy rainfalls and flooding, which in the past was not possible.
 
The road closure will begin on Tuesday 11th June 2019 with works scheduled to be completed Sunday 30th June 2019.
