Blasting of a rocky outcrop within the work site will take place on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 November. Motorists are advised that some delays may be experienced during the scheduled blasting works.

GRADING MAINTENANCE ACTIVITY – Maintenance grading is currently being undertaken on Kanangra Walls, Jaunter, Cosgrove and Jerrong Roads. This work will continue until 11 November 2016.

OBERON COMMON - Construction work has commenced on the creation of a new car parking area at the Oberon Common. The new carpark will facilitate access to the expanded area at the Common and is located off Curtis and Raleigh Streets. Clean fill has been imported to the site to minimise any exposure to Naturally Occurring Asbestos. No disturbance of existing land is proposed. Work is also scheduled to commence on the construction of two new sheltered BBQ picnic areas in the near future.
