A $2.6 million upgrade to a section of Ruttleys Road, Wyee, is finished.
A separate $4 million upgrade to Wyee Road should be finished within weeks.
Council’s Asset Manager Helen Plummer said Wyee had a growing population within the south west growth area from Cooranbong to Wyee.
Southern Lake Macquarie’s population continues to grow, and our ongoing investment in road infrastructure will help cope with this growth in years to come,” Ms Plummer said.
Over the past three years, we’ve spent more than $15 million improving Wyee’s roads, with more works planned in the next four years.”
Council is planning the next stage of the Ruttleys Road upgrade, towards the Government Road intersection near Wyee Point.
Works on upgrades to Ruttleys Road and Wyee Road should start in 2020.
Council will spend more than $37.5 million on road works and traffic improvements in 2019-2020 across Lake Macquarie.
The Wyee Road upgrade is jointly funded by the NSW Government and Council.
