Belmore River Right Bank Road rehabilitation


Council is rehabilitating Belmore River Right Bank Road between Loftus Road and South West Rocks Road.

Belmore River (Right Bank) Road is a key route between South West Rocks and Crescent Head and is heavily used by local residents, businesses and tourists.

Safety will be a key focus of the works, which will include pavement rehabilitation, shoulder widening, seal extensions and new guideposts and linemarking.

The road runs through a very fertile section of the lower Macleay Valley which supports a range of agricultural activities, including beef cattle and dairy farming. The improvements to the road will support these activities and their continued growth.


Works began in July 2022 and are expected to last several months, weather permitting.

Motorists should expect short delays. Traffic control will be in place as the works are carried out.


The total cost of the project is $1.8 million. Council has been granted $1,200,060 under the NSW Government's Fixing Local Roads Program and will itself contribute the remaining $599,940.
