Nine thousand tonnes of rock will be brought into the Northern Illawarra as the State Government spends three and a half million dollars maintaining the Sea Cliff Bridge.
The money will be used for works to protect bridge piers and improve slope stability at the northern end of the bridge.
The repair work means an increase in heavy traffic along Lawrence Hargrave Drive as tonnes of large rocks are transported a from Albion Park quarry to Coalcliff .
The rock deliveries will be made to a stockpile site during ‘restricted daylight hours’ for about a month- starting from Monday June 4, between 8am and 3pm.
An RMS spokesperson says the second stage of work will involve installing the rocks around the piers at the northern end of Sea Cliff Bridge to protect them from erosion from ocean waves.
“Work on this stage is expected to get under way in late July this year and will take about four months to complete, weather permitting and the community will be updated,” they say.
Delays of up to five minutes are expected while the deliveries take place.
