In January 2021, Council ripped the first patch of pavement on a three-year, $10 million upgrade of one of the Richmond Valley’s most important transport routes, Woodburn-Coraki Road. The initial round of works involved resurfacing a 270m section at the Woodburn end of the road, between the Rocky Mouth Creek bridge and the start of the 100kmh zone.  Woodburn-Coraki Road is one of the Richmond Valley’s most important roads, and its upgrade had been a long-term Council priority. It is frequently used by local residents, agricultural businesses, and regional travellers, and has long been a strategic focus of Council’s road maintenance program. This project is fully funded by the NSW Government. Watch the video for more details. 🎥
