Hermitage Road upgrade, Hunter Valley

A sod-turning ceremony to mark the start of the upgrade of Hermitage Road and cycleway through Pokolbin took place at 1pm today.

The project is a joint venture between Singleton and Cessnock Councils and should be a huge benefit for the area, says Singleton Mayor John Martin.

“Council will be doing a lot of work on the road and putting in cycle paths,” says Martin.

“This upgrade will help with bringing tourists through the vineyards in the area, so it’s a win-win for everybody, and its a great upgrade for Hermitage Road, particularly the cycleway that will go beside it.”
