Schedule for repairs to Hairpin Bend, temporary road closure & temporary changes to parking at Cargo Wharf

This week (28/9) Pittwater Council and their contractor Boral will commence preparations for the repairs to the Hairpin bend.

To make sure this is completed as smoothly and safely as possible there will be some temporary closures and changes to parking at Cargo Wharf. 

The hairpin will need to be closed for the duration of the Asphalt works. If there is any early traffic on the Hairpin whilst the works are still incomplete then they will be damaged which will significantly reduce the life of the repair. Council will be putting up immovable barricades on either side of the work space to prevent vehicles driving through.

Note: This is a hot mix asphalt so the road will be able to be used once the works are completed without additional delay for curing.

For the duration of the asphalting, all vehicles which would normally park on the corners of the concrete path up from Cargo Wharf must be moved as well as any vehicles which would otherwise park on the side of the road between Cargo Wharf and the Hairpin.

Due to the small road width, the truck we are bringing onto the island will require as much space as possible to manoeuvre. The truck will be carrying Asphalt so if it arrives on site and the vehicles are blocking its path work cannot proceed. Time is critical with the asphalt as after a few hours it hardens and becomes unusable
