Rangari Road Update


              Works are progressing on the Rangari road with several key steps being  ticked off before the trucks come rolling in.

              An environmental review and geotechnical investigation have been  completed after the Professional Services Agreement between Tamworth  Regional Council and Gunnedah Shire Council was established.

              The detailed survey has beem completed on both Local Government areas  by Bath Stewart Surveyors in Tamworth and Stewart Surveyors in  Gunnedah.

              The survey work will be provided to Tamworth Regional Council in  order to commence the detail design on behalf of both councils.

              The current timeline for this work is an expected completion by the  end of financial year.

              Once a detail design is done, councils will commence with drainage  works on the road which will extend culverts to accommodate the  proposed new formation.

              Following the drainage works, a staged progression in pavement works  will commence will anticipated completion expected in September 2022.

              Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the update was good news for  the people of the electorate.

              “Updates like this are always great because they keep the community  informed of the progression of works.

              “Without these updates, members of the community may feel left out of  the conversation, particularly when the upgrades affect them daily.

              “Rangari Road was an election commitment of mine so I’m happy have  these regular progression updates so I can let the community know.”

              “I will continue to provide the community with information as soon as  it comes to me.”
