Tulka S Bend

Following an inability to resolve a number of contractual issues, the Council has taken back possession of the site. Council staff are repairing the road surface and reinstating traffic management signage. Due to the protracted negotiations and the time of year, any further work on site other than maintaining the road surface will be unlikely until late or early April. Council will be working with the funding agencies (Motor Accident Commission and DPTI) to bring this project to a conclusion as soon as practicable in 2017. We apologise for the inconvenience.
