BATHURST Regional Council has said works being carried out on Boyd Street in Kelso are no cause for alarm.
Crews were seen working on the same street only a few months ago, in July, but director of Engineering Services, Darren Sturgiss, said those works were unrelated to what is currently being carried out.
“The road works carried out in July have held up very well,” he said.
“The current road works that are taking place are the result of the new developments happening at Sun Bright Orchard and opposite.”
To help facilitate the development, a new carrier sewer main must be laid along the road edge, which will then connect to an existing main, which is located in Bonnor Street.
“As a result of these works, a trench 800 millimetrees wide is being dug alongside the kerb on the eastern side of Boyd Street by the contractor,” Mr Sturgiss said.
“Once complete, the road will be reinstated to original condition.”
He said the trenching works were almost complete, with a seal to then be placed over it in accordance with the availability of the sealing contractors.
While crews are at work, traffic controllers will be in place to ensure that motorists are slowing down to suit the conditions and stopping to make way for other vehicles.
Mr Sturgriss said residents in the affected area were notified via a letterbox drop, done by the contractor, ahead of the works starting.
”The current traffic control signage is in accordance with the RMS traffic control requirements,” he said.
“The actual work site is relatively small which means delays are minimal.”
