Works update 12 August 2021: COVID-Safe work continues

Construction work continues at Wongawilli in line with updated NSW Public Health Orders. Our priority is to ensure the safety of our staff and the community during this work and strictly follow the COVID-Safe plan we have in place.

We are fast approaching our 12 month mark since Council staff commenced works again on this project at Stage 1B – Smiths Lane to Jersey Farm Road. The South Works 1 team, led by Leading Hand Marty Morris, broke ground with excavations on the trunk drainage at Pit No. 200/17 on Tuesday 22-September 2020.

Smiths Lane to Shone Avenue

  • Kerb & gutter We have poured the remainder of the concrete for the kerb & gutter on the southern side of Wongawilli Road between Shone Avenue and Smiths Lane for all properties.
  • Driveways We will continue with construction of property driveways and stormwater pits on the south side of the road with completion scheduled for late August or early September.
  • North side Once the south side is complete we will cross the road and commence construction of a concrete kerb & gutter on the north side and continue with the concrete shared path.
  • Stormwater pipe crossings Cadifern are working alongside Wollongong Council on this section of the road and installing concrete stormwater pipe crossings to connect north side drainage to the main trunk drainage. This work is taking place whilst the concrete culvert slab is curing.
  • Road surfacing, traffic islands and line marking Boral will be onsite Tuesday 17 August to asphalt reseal the section of Wongawilli Road from Smiths Lane to Bankbook Drive. The height warning indicator Tiger Tails will then be removed from overhead powerlines. Following the asphalt, concrete traffic islands and line marking will be installed on this section of road.
  • Retaining Walls we are currently inviting quotations from contractors for the reconstruction of the existing property retaining walls. These are currently treated timber and will be replaced with a block work construction.
  • Parking We'll continue to work with residents in managing their vehicles so that parking is avoided within construction zones. Council staff will provide as much notice and assistance as possible. Parking signage is currently under review with Councils Traffic Committee to determine if more on street parking can be utilised.
