Works update 13 April 2021
Shared path preparation and landscaping - north side between Jersey Farm Road and Smiths Lane
We’re finalising the installation of kerb inlets in the new kerb and gutter. Soon our crew will be progressing to construction of the shared path on the northern side of the road. We’ll also be undertaking verge grading and landscaping works to tie in the levels along this section of the road. We’ll touch base with affected residents beforehand.
Jersey Farm Road intersection
Works have started at the intersection of Jersey Farm Road. The crew will be working to complete kerb and gutter installation and preparation of road widening sections for the upcoming stabilisation works.
Trunk Drainage Works - south side between Shone Avenue and Smiths Lane
Cadifern has started works on the trunk drainage line which included service location and compound establishment. We've commenced the relocation of pits and pipes to within the work zone. Over the next couple of days Cadifern will be placing the precast drainage pits within the road reserve so that they are accessible for installation once trenching has started. Construction fencing will be installed around each of the pits. Cadifern will be working closely with affected residents to manage access to properties, as the work front moves along, from west to east. All residents along this section of road have been provided with key contacts, should they have any questions or concerns.
Culverts near Shone Avenue intersection
Cadifern has completed the installation of the next section of culverts as well as backfilling. The final section of culverts will be installed once we have completed the pavement construction on the northern side of the temporary road. This is expected to be completed in July.
We're happy to let you know that we'll soon be planting the first of many street trees along Wongawilli Road. We'll start on the southern side between Smiths Lane and Jersey Farm Road. The plants are now in stock and the landscaping crew will get back in touch with residents for final confirmation of location and species prior to planting.
