MACS REEF ROAD roadworks project
Macs Reef Road (Bywong) between Bankers Road and Newington Road was closed from 7.00 am on Monday, 8 April for major roadwork.
Working Monday to Saturday, 6.30 am to 4.30 pm has enabled considerable progress to be made on the construction site.
It is easy to see why the work could not be carried carried out without closing the road, it is a construction site and as such must conform to the relevant OH&S regulations.
New under-road pipes and headwalls have been installed along with the reloaction of some Telstra cabling.
There is still plenty of earth works to be completed with pretty heavy going in sections of rock.
An enourmous about of earth has to be shifted just to raise or lower the road a meter.
The photo above gives an appreciation of the rise of the hill.
While the temporary road closure has been inconvenience to many, this roadwork was neccessary and the improvement will be obvious. On track for completion by 17th May
CAR BOOT SALE a great social day
The 2013 Bywong Car Boot Sale was a great social day, with people chatting with each other and enjoying the outing. Demonstrations included the Geary’s Gap Pony Club members playing soccer with a huge ball, and later their horses performed to music.
A monster raffle offered 23 big prizes with the proceeds going towards purchasing an electric hose reel for the Wamboin fire Brigade.
