UPDATE

Infrastructure Delivery wishes to inform you that the proposed asphalting works will be starting in February 2021. Council acknowledges that it can be a challenge to deliver the necessary works and not affect road users, especially when much of the work is determined by weather conditions.

* These dates may be subject to change and contractor availability, favourable weather conditions and therefore may need rescheduling.

What to expect:

  • The use of heavy plant and machinery including noisy works such as profiling, asphalt laying and use of trucks for removal or delivery of asphalt
  • Our contractor will notify nearby residents and businesses that may be impacted by these works, in order to minimise disruptions and allow the successful completion of the work.

Renewal of the road surface ensures that Council's network is sustainable and able to continue to provide appropriate levels of service for road users well into the future.
