Works update 1 April 2021

As today’s our last day before the Easter break, we’re providing an update before we head off. We’ll be back on-site next Wednesday 7 April.

Kerb and gutter installation - north side between Jersey Farm Road and Smiths Lane

We completed pouring the kerb and gutter yesterday and the crew has begun to install drainage grates and lintels here as well. After the break we’ll be back to finalise these grates and lintels. We’ll then be able to start on the concrete shared path and localised landscaping. We’ll speak to affected residents closer to the time, towards the end of April.

Culverts near Shone Avenue Intersection

Cadifern have completed the base slab for the next section of culverts today. The culverts will be arriving on site next Wednesday. Once these are in place we'll back fill around the culverts and move on to the connection to the new trunk drainage line.

Endeavour Energy to install Tiger Tails on overhead power lines – 7 April

Endeavour Energy will be installing tiger tails – which are a black and yellow striped covering, on the overhead power lines crossing Wongawilli Road between Smiths Lane and Shone Avenue. Traffic controls will be in place for part of the day when works are occurring.

Jersey Farm Road intersection

Construction works will also start at the Jersey Farm Road intersection after we come back from the Easter break.

Trunk Drainage Works - south side between Shone Avenue and Smiths Lane

Cadifern Civil will be undertaking these essential works before we can install kerb and gutter and driveways along this section of road. The drainage works will involve very deep excavation work and include eight road crossings to pits on the northern side. Works are expected to start shortly after Easter, beginning from the Shone Avenue end of the site and working back towards the Smiths Lane intersection. Due to the deep excavation required for the drainage and the complexity of having to work around existing services, the drainage works are expected to take around 3 months to complete, weather permitting. We chatted with residents along here this week to discuss what these works will mean for them.

Have a safe and happy Easter break. See you when we get back!
