Temporary closure of Brinsmead Road
A portion of Brinsmead Rd near Freshwater Christian College will be closed until Tuesday April 19, to allow for private construction works for the Freshwater Pocket Stage 1. development.
Both ends of Brinsmead Road remain open allowing access to properties, including the school and Redlynch Cyclones Football Club, however the road is not open to through traffic.
Council CEO Mica Martin said the developer brought forward the works to coincide with the school holidays to reduce the impact on the school and broader community.
“Council officers became aware of the need for the closure late last week,” Ms Martin said.
“We appreciate there was limited warning for residents and that more should have been done to inform road users of the closure in a timely manner.
“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and will put steps in place to improve our notification process.”
Council is working closely with the developer in the hope that the works are completed and the road is reopened by the Easter holiday period.
