Hopefully, in one more week a vital local road will finally reopen.
Wheelbarrow Road has been closed for most of this year, but a spokesperson said Shoalhaven City Council said the plan was to reopen the road within days.
"Council anticipates Wheelbarrow Road will reopen on Friday, December 11," a council spokesperson said.
"The road was sealed on Wednesday and minor works are still required.
"The road works were delayed due to wet weather in October."
The road has been out of action for months following the summer bushfire crisis.
Much work, including the rebuilding of a bridge and extensive work to remove trees damaged in the bushfire, has been done to get the road back in operation.
Meanwhile, a local resident also raised issues about the state of the road which was not being repaired.
The Western end of Wheelbarrow Road would have been one of, if not the worst, roads in the Shoalhaven.
It is in need of massive maintenance with major cracks appearing on the verge of the road and the hundreds of badly damaged trees from the Currowan Bushfire need to be removed.
A local resident who has been lobbying for something to be done to fix the roads, says driving on the road is like playing Russian Roulette.
"Every time you come down here you are avoiding oncoming traffic and it's really only a one-lane road," the resident said of the two-lane road.
Several heavy rain events have also damaged the road and made it unsafe.
Work now needs to be carried out to fix the western end of the road.
Council, in a previous statement, responded to the claim that parts of the road is now unsafe due to major cracking "Geotechnical investigations have been completed at the road slip about 4.9km from Princes Highway and an engineering design report detailing rectification options will be completed by Cardno soon," the council spokesperson said.
"The road affected by the landslip will be temporarily reduced to one lane and traffic lights installed when the road is opened."
