Caution needed at Tallegalla Rd
MOTORISTS are being warned to drive carefully along Tallegalla Rd, Marburg, in the next fortnight as repair work is carried out on a section of road damaged by floodwater.
Division 10 Councillor David Pahlke said the January flooding and recent heavy rains caused erosion damage to a road embankment near 228 Tallegalla Rd.
Cr Pahlke said Tallegalla Rd’s usual speed limit of 100kmh had been reduced to 40kmh for the duration of the works.
“A one-lane operation with a Give Way control for vehicles approaching from Minden is in place. We ask drivers to be patient when travelling through this section in the coming weeks while this vital work is undertaken,” he said.
City Works Committee chairman Trevor Nardi said the damage was from flooding and erosion of a road embankment through a gully, caused by stormwater flowing over the road.
“We have had to close the road to one lane for driver safety so work can be carried out to stabilise the damaged embankment and to install erosion protection,” he said.
