TITLE
Entrance improvements
ARTICLE
When the local community began making environmental improvements to the village, Marybank Quarry decided to make its own entrance more attractive – and safer.

The original entrance was narrow and at a slight angle to the adjoining road, making visibility a problem. The situation has been remedied by removing several metres of stone walling and re-aligning the road. Other improvements include new kerbs to ensure that surface water drains away, stone walling, a resurfaced road entrance, and new timber gates.
