Road test results
In 2012, Wingecarribee Shire Council was notified of the possibility of asbestos within the unsealed road surfaces of several roads in the Robertson area.
Council takes any such notification seriously and immediately undertook testing and notified property owners.
Council also notified the appropriate authorities which include the Environment Protection Authority (EPA), Department of Health and WorkCover NSW.
Upon further investigation a decision was made to check other roads within the Shire which could potentially have an asbestos contamination.
To discuss this matter further, please contact Council on (02) 4868 0888 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
