It’s taken nearly six years, but work has started on repairing the collapsed section of Lighthouse Rd and the adjacent timber walkway.
Site offices have been set up at the Captain Cook Lookout parking area and workers last week were preparing the area for a full-scale start on the job.
As well as the traffic lights, drivers also had to contend with traffic controllers near the project offices. The contractor, Civilteam Engineering, has been given 26 weeks to complete the $2.9 million job.
If weather conditions are favourable, Lighthouse Road should be open to two-way traffic by Christmas.
The roadway and walkway collapsed after extremely heavy rain in June 2005.
