$2.5M MANILLA ROAD UPGRADE MOVES INTO PHASE 2
The much needed $2.5Million Manilla Road (Peel Street) upgrade remains on track with phase 1 of work now complete and phase 2 already commenced.
Mr Anderson said the road has been successfully widened between Tribe and Marius Streets, the water main relocated and the construction of a new drainage culvert successfully completed.
“Construction is well on schedule which means we’re currently on time and on budget. The next phase of works will see the construction of kerb and guttering in various sections of Manilla Road.
“We remain committed to delivering this project as promised which is why crews will push ahead with construction during the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Disruptions will be minimised with works being completed away from the roadway.
“Manilla Road is a main route in Tamworth that has seen increased traffic due to a growing population and new development which is why this investment is so important.
“Because Tamworth is a growing city we continue to invest in our roads and infrastructure so that traffic movements can be safer and more efficient.
“The project team will continue to work with residents and businesses within the area to ensure access is maintained during construction and there are minimal delays to traffic.”
This project is funded as part of the NSW Government’s Traffic Efficiency Improvements program which aims to relieve traffic congestion.
