Project traffic information
During the construction of the Enlarged Cotter Dam, road users will experience more traffic on roads in the Cotter area. The number and type of vehicles accessing the Cotter Dam worksite will vary, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week, with heavier vehicle traffic expected from August 2011 to September 2012.
Key roads affected during construction
The primary road used by construction vehicles is Cotter Road. Paddys River Road is a secondary route. From Cotter Road, Brindabella Road is used as a secondary access route to the construction site.
Sharing the road
We are committed to respecting all road users as we share the local road network. The Bulk Water Alliance Shared Roads Policy is a statement of this commitment, and its implementation includes a number of measures for Cotter Road.
Cotter Road traffic
The volume of vehicles on the locals roads as a result of the project has greatly reduced as the project reaches its final stages.
Driver education, regular reminders and strict enforcement of our staff to uphold appropriate driving behaviour continues to be maintained during the construction of the Enlarged Cotter Dam.
Access to public areas
Cotter Avenue was closed to the public during construction of the new dam. The Avenue has since been upgraded and is open to the public full-time. Click here to learn about the upgrade works.
Blasting activities for the dam have been completed.
