$5m Clarence Way project nears completion

A 3.7km stretch of newly sealed road is nearing completion at Keybarbin, north of Baryulgil in the upper Clarence Valley.

The $5 million reconstruction project, which commenced in early 2022, has involved earthworks, new culverts and swale drains, guard rails, road widening and sealing.

The Clarence Valley Council says Clarence Way is a key access road for local agricultural industries and an important connection for regional freight between Grafton and the Bruxner Highway.

Wet weather and floods had a significant impact on the rollout of the project, with a total of seven weeks of work lost between February and May. However, the council says formation and drains are now completed across the entirety of the project.

A total of 1.2km is now fully sealed and the remainder is due to be completed by early 2023.
