Guaranteed dry weather is needed for the final seal of the Houston Mitchell Drive upgrade.

The final spray seal will go ahead across the two stages of the work.

Line marking will occur three or four weeks after the final seal.

The $7 million upgrade aims to improve safety and traffic flow, provide a quality road pavement and improve roadside drainage.

The program of works involved two sections of Houston Mitchell Drive – the section between Long Point Drive and the Pacific Highway and a 2.5 kilometre stretch west of Forest Parkway.

The upgrade has been substantially complete for some time.

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council had identified the Houston Mitchell Road upgrade as a priority project.

Houston Mitchell Drive, which connects Ocean Drive with the Pacific Highway, is a popular link for Camden Haven residents.
