THE Eurobodalla Shire Council road works crew worked hard to get the bitumen primer seal on the Narooma Flat roundabout project in time for the October long-weekend and the Great Southern Blues Festival.
Project foreman Nick Ziviani said now a 250mm-thick, hard-wearing asphalt layer will go over the entire section.
The asphalt should be down and the actual roundabout structure completed by the end of the month.
Council made good use of the old roadway that was ripped up and laid down on the former dirt road that goes for around 500m behind Bar Beach.
A bitumen primer seal was added last week while the bitumen trucks were in town sealing the road.
Deputy mayor Neil Burnside welcomed new sealing saying it was a great initiative.
Concern has been expressed about whether any of this fill material was contaminated by old Caltex service station, but the council has had the material tested by an independent laboratory and WorkCover has also audited the site twice.
Plans for landscaping component of the Narooma Flat streetscaping project are also progressing.
Some business owners have expressed concern about trees on the western side of the highway blocking the view of their businesses.
The comment period of the landscaping design has now closed but these and other concerns are being taken into account by the Narooma Streetscaping Sunset Advisory Committee.
