Work on the initial stages of the Woodburn-Coraki Road upgrade were completed in September 2018. The work was completed by our own Council employees on time and within budget, which is a great result given the complexities of this major project.
Funds for this project came from the $1.4 million heavy haulage levy applied to Quarry Solutions and some other heavy industries, and a $1 million Federal Government grant. The 1.7km stage one section was located 200m west of Old Ferry Road and finished 350m east of Reardon’s Lane. Stage two started at Purseys Road and continued east for 1.4km. Richmond Valley Council continues to pursue funding opportunities to finish the upgrade of this important regional road.
