The roadway was given a fresh gravel/bitumen surface in 2016. I don't believe the existing 2013 surface was stripped off first.

In the past year, the asphalt ? Surface has been in disrepair, leaving vehicles driving over irrational surface, between the asphalt and wooden timber underlay. Just this past month, September 2013, the wooden surface was completely stripped of the poor coating , and resurfaced with some special asphalt coating. A 100% better surface.
