WCC & Illawara Residents to Celebrate Reopening of Mt. Keira Road
Wollongong City Council are organising a Community walk to celebrate the reopening of Mt. Keira Road. Illawara residents are being encouraged to participate in this event on November 8th, 2014. Participants can enter either the 6.5-kilometre “School2Summit” cycle climb, kicking off from Edmund Rice College, or the 5-kilometre Summit Walk, starting from Mt Keira Demonstration School. Return shuttle buses from the lookout will be free for walkers.
In November 2013, The Wollongong City Council have contracted Specialised Geo to undertake the road remediation geotechnical works at Mt Keira Road to reduce slope instability risk in the area and subsequently re-open the road to traffic with an acceptable level of risk. Specialised Geo have completed the job on both the upper cliff face and the lower embankments in July 2014.
