Galston Gorge Road is fully reopened between Hornsby Heights and Galston.
The road was closed from 8 August to 5th November to carry out major stabilisation and engineering works, such as:
Drilling rock bolts 6 to 8 metres into the rock face.
The installation of 16 horizontal drains into the slope to draw out moisture
Spray on concrete to secure and stabilise the front slope
Building a retaining wall out of large concrete blocks to secure the slope
The removal of 60 tonnes of sandstone and 340 tonnes of soil
All works are now completed. TfNSW and ConnectSydney would like to thank the community for their patience during this time.
