Cessnock City Council has successfully received funding to the value of $1,100,037 from Transport for NSW Governments fixing local roads program. Cessnock City Council is contributing an additional $445,363 to enable the $1,545,400 rehabilitation of Mount View Road between Links and Barrett Avenue.
The existing pavement in the area is rapidly deteriorating and requires an urgent full pavement rehabilitation. The existing water main located within the pavement is nearing its useful life and requires upgrading and relocation to ensure future failure does not damage the newly constructed pavement. Negotiations with Hunter Water are ongoing to receive additional funding for watermain replacement works. Council is currently working with suitable qualified consultants to develop a detailed design based on a throughout investigation on requirements to achieve. Road resurfacing occurred in 2015 and this project was originally scheduled in the 2018 works program with project ID RRL 2018 010.
