If you’ve driven the Woodburn-Coraki Rd, you know about the potholes.
Along some stretches there have been improvements, with more planned.
Part of the road, about 3.5km, has already been widened and repaired at a cost of $2.6million.
The works included asphalting, improving stormwater culverts, line marking and landscaping.
The next eight months will see heavy patching, shoulder grading and the resealing of previous works around Birmingham Flat and Skinners Flat.
This will be followed by further widening work on a 3.5km stretch from Coraki to Myall Creek Road, and a 1.5km section from Skinners Flat towards Reardons Lane.
Initial works also involved the resurfacing a 270m section at the Woodburn end of the road, between the Rocky Mouth Creek Bridge and the start of the 100kmh zone.
The road repairs are part of the State Government’s three-year, $10 million commitment to improve the road’s condition.
