Sheepways Road, Krowera - 3km south of Loch Wonthaggi Road - Pavement Renewal works

Sheepways

We wish to advise that the Infrastructure Delivery team has appointed contractors SR Excavations, Sure Constructions and Fulton Hogan to carry out sealed road pavement renewal works along Sheepways Road from property number 605 in southerly direction for about 3.1 kilometres (or the end of the existing sealed road). See plan on the next page.

Construction works will begin the week of 26 August 2019 and are anticipated to be completed prior to Christmas, subject to contractor’s availability and weather permitting. These works are being carried out under Council annual supply contracts for stabilisation, plant, labour hire and materials.

These works will be carried out as a part of Council’s adopted 2019-20 Capital Works Program. This $1.121 million project is partly funded by the Federal Government’s Roads To Recovery Program (R2R) in the order of $738,000 and Council of $383,000 respectively.

The works will involve verge and drainage clearing, drainage pipe and pit works, road pavement renewal by adding crushed rock overlay and cement stabilisation to the existing road pavement and road sealing works.

There will be changes in traffic movements that include a lane closure controlled by traffic controllers / traffic lights and a worksite speed restriction of 40 km/hr. Outside of normal working hours the road will be returned to two lane traffic at appropriate speed restrictions. Please obey all traffic control measures onsite. Our staff and workers have families too.

We appreciated that these works may present an inconvenience and we ask for patience during these times. Our contractors will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction.
