Works at Mt. Keira Road, Wollongong
In November 2013, The Wollongong City Council authorised the Specialised Geo to carry out the road remediation geotechnical works at Mt Keira Road.The purpose of the project is to reduce slope instability risk in the area and subsequently re-open the road to traffic with an acceptable level of risk.
It can be recalled that the area below the Scout Camp access road was kept closed after the Council found out that the area poses a high risk to the travelling public due to rock falls or slope instability.
Specialised Geo Team is currently working on the site to address the slope instability issues of both the upper cliff face and the lower embankments. The works are expected to be completed by the end of March 2014.
The team”s stabilisation works will later allow road upgrade works to take place in the area
