Wheelbarrow Road has re-opened to the public following upgrade works by Shoalhaven City Council.
Wheelbarrow Road, south west of Burrill Lake, suffered significant damage in last year's bushfires, with a number of pieces of infrastructure impacted.
Works included the construction of a new and improved Wheelbarrow Road bridge over Lucy Kings Creek, Morton.
A seven metre wide bitumen sealed surface along 2.3 kilometres of Wheelbarrow Road that was previously unsealed was also completed.
The council-funded project cost $1.3 million and took 10 months to complete.
The January bushfires destroyed the timber Wheelbarrow Road bridge, along with four other bridges in the Shoalhaven.
Shoalhaven Mayor Amanda Findley said council had worked as quickly as possible to rebuild infrastructure damaged by the fires with more fire resilient replacements.
"I'm delighted that in addition to a fire resilient bridge, the upgrades to Wheelbarrow Road will improve safety and access for residents and visitors to Morton," she said.
"The Wheelbarrow Road project included vegetation clearing, earthworks and road widening. It has taken time to secure funding, finalise tenders and arrange contracts but it has been worth the wait," Cr Findley said.
