Federal Drive reconstruction

  • Project scheduleApril 2023 to April 2024 (subject to change)

Latest project update

September 2023

Contractors are continuing with 'piling' work to stabilise the ground.

This will take several months and is necessary before the road can be rebuilt.

Revegetation work is also being done on the embankment.

There is no pedestrian access through the work site. 

It will likely take around 12 months to complete the project. 

The rehabilitation of Federal Drive includes:

  • Stabilisation of the land slip (soil nailing, tree removal, earthwork)
  • Revegetation of the slip face.
  • Reconstruction of the road
  • Drainage work including the replacement of four culverts
  • Repair and reseal of the road pavement
  • Installation of guardrails


A detour on Kings Road is available. 

There are also detours via Montecollum and Coolamon Scenic Drive.

Council has also done improvements to Whian Road.
